When Rhine and Annie Benner stepped off the train in June of 1915, they did not realize what they were getting into. They were used to the comforts of Scottdale, Pennsylvania. Could they hold up under the rigors and challenges of ministering to scattered churches in the rugged Allegheny Mountains of West Virginia? One of the waiting mission board members stated, "I doubt they'll last the first winter." There certainly were challenges. A weekend circuit of preaching assignments could easily be twenty-five miles on foot, in all kinds of weather. Most roads were impassable by car, and the mission board couldn't afford a horse. This true story portrays the Benner's love for God and for souls in mountainous West Virginia. Paperback, 307 pages.
