I Can See the Shore: Growing Up Yanomamö Today

 Mike Dawson's new book is now available...a must read!

The long wait for the arrival of Mike Dawson’s 2nd book is now over! I Can See the Shore: Growing Up Yanomamö Today is now available for purchase in our store.
If you read Mike Dawson’s first book, Growing Up Yanomamö, you’ve already begun to walk Mike’s journey through joy and sorrow, victory and defeat. Whether or not you’ve read the first book, you won’t want to miss this second one. Full of excitement and adventure, ”I Can See the Shore brings to life a little known world of shaman, rituals, and secret initiations of the stone-aged culture of the Yanomamö tribe. Walk with Mike Dawson as he shares the Gospel and deals with his own personal life and death situations.”

I  laughed at Mike’s jungle exploits and cried with him over his daughter’s death. Very few people have the opportunity to grow up on both sides of the cultural fence as Mike and I have. Reading this book will highlight the Gospel as a multicultural message. — Steve Saint,
I Can See the Shore depicts a life lived among the Yanomamö with gusto and good humor, while personal sorrows are overcome with grace and transcendence. Mike Dawson not only tells his own remarkable story, but also translates the experiences of Yanomamö shamans, warriors, and childhood friends as they struggle with illness and warfare and confront choices about how to live as Yanomamö in a modern age.  — Amy Wray, National Geographic Television
I’ve known the Dawsons for several years and rejoice in their great faith in God amid severe trials. In spite of the obstacles of primitive conditions, sickness, and death, they have persevered for the souls of the Yanomamö Indians in the rainforest of southern Vene-­ zuela. This book is a gripping life story of the triumph of missions with all its mega-­challenges. — Dr. George Sweeting, Chancellor Emeritus Moody Bible Institute
