The Poisonwood Bible      Lantana Library Call No.: F Kin
by Barbara Kingsolver

A richly satisfying novel about Nathan Price, a brutally ignorant American missionary in 1959 Belgian Congo. Written in alternating narratives spanning 30 years by Nathan’s wife and their four daughters, these stories, each in its distinct voice, omit none of the politics, folly and willful ignorance of this stranger in a strange land.
