This is the story of a young girl named Kondima in the mountains of Borneo. While playing with the village children in the jungle, she meets with misfortune. Her accident requires a trip to Singapore where doctors are able to restore her to good health.
During this whole adventure, she learns about Jesus as her personal friend, and she wants to show others. As a result, she ends up converting a large part of her village.
During her adventurous life, Norma Youngberg was a prolific writer and creative writing teacher. Her classic books such as Queen's Gold, Jungle Thorn, Tiger of Bitter Valley, Singer on the Sand, Headhunter Hostage, and many others reveal the power of the gospel among primitive jungle peoples, and are favorites still today. Norma was born in Iowa and grew up in South Dakota. She came from a family of teachers, missionaries, and writers. Norma and husband Gustavus spent 20 years in the mission field, raised a family of six, and pioneered work among headhunters on the Tatau River of Sarawak.
