Mission life was hard, dangerous and had its humourous times. Leaving his true love thousands of miles behind was one of the hardest things he did. The man, places and many of the events are true. The people he interacted with over these years are fictional The source for this novel comes from a tape recording, made on an old reel to reel tape that Robins made when he was well into his eighties. I praise God that he shared such rich stories with the family and now I take this opportunity to share them with you. May you loose yourself in a time long ago, in snow storms, lumber camps, fights and a love that lasted a life time - through the stories of a man who qfoughtq for God.
