Adventures Around the World
15-volume Adventures from Around the World Devotional Series.

These enthralling, true-life missionary stories are full of adventure, humor, and faith.

In African Adventures the missionaries lose their way in the bush and are stalked by lions in their camp. Amazon Adventures is bursting with exotic wildlife, tapirs, beetles as big as mice, and kinkajous. The land of the Outback Adventures in Australia is still fairly untamed; kangaroos, wallabies, and emus all live and thrive there. Kiwi Adventures introduces your family to the Kakapo - the parrot of the night, along with penguins, the albatross, and sea lions.

Even in the tamer Rocky Mountain Adventures there are missionary adventures with mountain bears, black panthers, deadly spiders, and poisonous snakes. The only living object that can be seen from the moon, the Great Barrier Reef, has over 2,500 categories of fish, 400 categories of mollusks, and 500 varieties of seaweed, all stunning examples of God's creation. The Himalayan Adventures is about more than a range of mountains. It includes the mythological yeti, a bossy monkey with pierced ears, alcoholic elephants, and folks for whom Christ died. Scottish Highland Adventures acquaints your family with a country that comprises less than 0.1% of the earth's population, yet has contributed significantly to the spiritual vigor throughout the world. There is an island on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean that people call Ireland. But its lush hills and sea-green oceans have earned it the name: The Emerald Isle. In Emerald Isle Adventures, find out about the famines and fighting that have blighted this jewel of an island.

Rain Forest Adventures contains stories about tree frogs, anteaters, piranha fish, snakes, jaguars, and many more wonders of God's creation. Wild West Adventures are stories based in the western USA and consist of stories of wild critters and of people of faith who were inspired by Jesus! In Cambodian Adventures, find out what it's like to live and work in the far east country of Cambodia amongst the Khmer people. Discover what it's like to work as a missionary in a Buddhist country. Join in with the adventure as you travel around in taxis, vans, trucks, carts, and tuk-tuks - small roofed carriages pulled around by a motorcycle. Discover what a fried spider tastes like and what drink tastes like pureed cabbage!

In New York City Adventures, you may be surprised to find quiet corners and vast green spaces filled with all kinds of wildlife. You'll also meet people who are trusting God with their lives and trying to make a difference in the lives of others. Read the real life stories of the explorers in Pacific Adventures who discovered the peoples and islands of this region as well as the missionaries who brought God's word and the good news of the gospel to the people living there. The Antarctic is a world of snow and ice. In Antarctic Adventures, you will find out about the natural habitat, the history of the explorers and the people who are today doing their utmost to protect this sensitive environment. Throughout it all you will see the beauty of creation as well as learning what God can teach you about Himself through His world and His word.

Each book is written for 7- to 12-year-old children and includes black-and-white illustrations, so this set of 15 exciting books could also be a great read-aloud for the younger children.

The land of the Kiwis is a fascinating country. Not only does New Zealand have one of the most unusual flightless birds (the kiwi itself), it has many other claims to fame as well. If you thought it was the Wright brothers who first flew in an airplane, think again - the kiwis reckon it was one of their own, Richard Pearse. But there is no disputing that it was a New Zealander, Murray Kendon, who started Mission Aviation Fellowship. MAF planes are used across the world to bring help and the good news of Jesus Christ to thousands of people in far-flung places. New Zealand has other claims to fame, too. Through the pages of this book you'll be introduced to the Maori people. You'll see animals and birds that will amaze and enthrall you (such as penguins, the majestic albatross, sea lions, and even dolphins and whales).
