In Irian Jaya's remote Snow Mountains lived the Yali--cannibals who called themselves "lords of the earth." Yet in terror and bondage they served women-hating, child-despising gods. Bowing to the kembu spirits, Yali men rendered fearful obedience, even executing children.
When missionary Stan Dale dared to enter the domain of this stone-age people, he embarked on a course that would swiftly bring him, his wife, and his companions into a bloody life-or-death struggle with the Yali's complex religion. He did not know what chilling hazards awaited him, nor at what cost the Yali would at last know the love of their Redeemer.
