Manuel Author:Hugh Steven Mexican Indians are trapped not only geographically but they are victims of their own culture. Threatened with social isolation, ridicule and even death if they consider a way of life different from the status quo, they remain bound to century-old tribal conditions. Manuel's own brothers refuse to believe that he came from the same father. "N... more »o one can become what you have become," they say, "and have the same father as us."
Here is the story of one young Indian who was able to change, both himself and his people. Born in a primitive hut on Zapotitlán, Mexico, Manuel early exhibited a fiery curiosity about life beyond the deep green canyons that hemmed his mountain village.
The course of his life changed radically when he met an American Bible translator, Herman Aschmann, who introduced him to God and started him on a life career of study and teaching and sharing his knowledge with his own people.« less
