Binka Le Breton; read by the author; foreword read by Sister Elizabeth Bowyer, SNDdeN In 1966, Sister Dorothy Stang went to Brazil as a missionary, and in 1982 she moved to a small town in the Amazon to work with an organization to protect poor farmers and their land from loggers and land-developers who stop at nothing-including murder-in pursuit of profits. After testifying at a government panel investigating illegal incursions into protected areas, Sister Dorothy was renounced as a "terrorist" by powerful companies and began receiving death threats. Refusing to be intimidated, she continued her wor-until two gunmen shot her six times on a rural Amazon road. The Greatest Gift is the first biography of this extraordinary woman and her mission. Written by a mainstream journalist who has spent many years in Brazil, it exposes the entrenched collusion between government officials and commercial interests and celebrates the profound courage of Sister Dorothy and others fighting to protect the Amazon jungles and the people eking out a life there.
On February 12, 2005, Dorothy Stang, a 73-year-old Sister of Notre Dame de Namur who had lived and ministered in Brazil for nearly 40 years, was shot and killed by two hired gunmen. This is the powerful story of her work, her life and her legacy. This biography reveals the dangers faced by those who challenge commercial interests, government collusion and large-scale land-grabbing in the Amazon. Yet it is a story of life freely given, a celebration of courage and solidarity with the people who wish to live in the rainforest without destroying its abundance. It is an expose not only of greed and violence, but of faith and simple love.
