Item Description...
Overview
FROM THE BOOK: "Faster, Jack, faster!" Wilfred Grenfell called to the lead dog in his sledge team. Jack needed no second reminder. He loved to go as fast as possible and he urged his team forward. Wilfred loved to go fast too and felt a thrill as the cold wind blew past his face. There was such freedom flying across deep snow and ice and so far, all seemed to be going well. But just then, instead of hard ice, they hit slush, which meant a patch of ice was melting and could break apart at any moment. "Come on Jack," Wilfred yelled. "Faster!" But it did not matter. The worst thing happened. Right in front of the dogs the ice cracked open. Watching in horror, Jack and then one by one the other dogs, slid into the freezing water....." Take part in this adventure that is the life of Dr. Wilfred Grenfell, missionary and medic to the frozen wastelands of Labrador and Newfoundland. Among Grenfell's many experiences, one of the most perilous occurred in 1908, when on his way to answer a call he became stranded on a piece of ice. He was forced to stay on the pan overnight and was eventually rescued the following morning. Another example of his adventurous life!

Wilfred Grenfell: The Arctic Adventurer_, by Linda Finlayson  Feb 9, 2006
Wilfred Grenfell: The Arctic Adventurer_, by Linda Finlayson
Christian Focus Publications, Ross-shire UK 2004 ISBN 1-85792-929-2

Youth biography ages 8-11

Reviewed by Donna Farley

Technically speaking, Newfoundland and Labrador are not quite the Arctic, so
the alliterative subtitle is a bit of poetic license that might best have
been avoided in an educational book. But that Sir Wilfred Grenfell led a
life of adventure is undeniable. This lively and informative biography for
young people details the exceptional career of this medical missionary, who
became a towering figure in Canadian history.

"Many people think being a Christian is boring because you have to obey all
of God's laws," writes author Linda Finlayson, a Canadian now living in the
U.S. "But they are wrong because obeying God and listening to him is really
a very great adventure."

It was Grenfell's own first-person narrative of the great adventure in his
own
life, _Adrift on an Ice Pan_, that first got Finlayson interested in the
preacher and physician. She opens her book with Grenfell's harrowing
experience on the ice off the Newfoundland coast in 1908, and the moving
account of his necessary sacrifice of several of his sled dogs.

The British-born Grenfell's early work involved treating the ills of men in
the North Sea fishing fleet, but it was not until he arrived in Canada that
he came into his own. The harsh climate of Newfoundland and Labrador, and
the poverty and suffering of the inhabitants, provided a fit challenge for
his seemingly
inexhaustible creative energy. Before his death in 1940, he had travelled
extensively in the area by ship and dogsled, establishing a workable medical
system, forming the locals into craft manufacturing co-operatives, even
importing reindeer from Lapland to provide milk for needy children. All
these initiatives came from a heartfelt love for the gospel as Grenfell
heard it from D.L. Moody in a London tent meeting.

Bonus material makes this book especially suitable for school or home school
use: Newfoundland-Labrador map; timeline placing events in Grenfell's life
in the context of world and Canadian History; quiz with answers; Grenfell
summary; Newfoundland history, geography and symbols.

The book is just one of Christian Focus's Light Keepers series of
biographies for young people, which includes a wide variety of other
Christian luminaries such as Eric Liddel, David Livingstone, Billy Graham,
Augustine of Hippo, Florence Nightingale, Corrie Ten Boom, Catherine Booth
and more.
 
A Great Book  Jan 4, 2005
I really liked this book. It was exciting to read and I hope that the author writes more.
