Fanatical Christian Minister moves his wife and children to the jungles of Africa to convert the tribes to Christianity. The Minister slowly goes insane for his efforts, and his behavior as well as the dangers of the jungle put him and his family in danger. As the children grow they all take different paths and reconcile their experience in Africa. Really great story.
