Review: These Strange Ashes

These Strange AshesThese Strange Ashes by Elisabeth Elliot
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I don’t think this is the Elisabeth Elliot book to start with. If you are already familiar with some of her story, you appreciate this much more. This is the account of her days among the Colorado Indians before she married Jim Elliot and before the account in "Through Gates of Splendor."

I love how she captures the everyday things in the cultures she lives in. She presents an honest look at life, including some of her frustrations and disappointments. We did this as a family read-aloud and everyone loved it. I recommend it.
