Martyr of the Amazon : The Life of Sister Dorothy Stang

Format: Paperback
Pub. Date: 9/5/2007

Availability: This title is currently not available.


The murder in 2005 of an American nun, Sister Dorothy Stang, focused the world's attention on the plight of poor farmers in the Brazilian Amazon and their struggles against rapacious developers. From a conventional nun in the pre-Vatican II era, she had developed a keen social conscience and, increasingly, a deep, mystical commitment to the integrity of Creation. These ideals combined in her advoacy for the rights of the poor and her defense of the imperiled rain forest.
