Publisher's Summary

In 2005, 73-year-old Sister of Notre Dame de Namur Dorothy Stang was shot and killed by two hired gunmen. The Greatest Gift is the powerful story of Dorothy's nearly 40 years living and ministering in Brazil. This biography reveals the dangers faced by those who challenge commercial interests, government collusion, and large-scale land-grabbing in the Amazon. Yet it is also a story of life, work, and legacy freely given, a celebration of courage and solidarity with the people who wish to live in the rainforest without destroying its abundance. It's an expose not only of greed and violence, but also of faith and simple love.
