Excerpt inside front cover : “Truth is stranger than fiction” is a saying which can very aptly be applied to Omer Englebert’s biography of the “Hero of Molokai”, Father Damien. Adventure, mystery, pathos, excitement, thrills-all and even more are encountered in this vivid story of a great man-a priest-who spent his life in the service of a forsaken people, the lepers of Molokai. No greater love can a man have than to give up his life for his neighbor. And Father Damien had this love. Molokai become world renowned because of this burning, all-consuming love which knew no bounds and broke down all barriers.
