Jungle Pilot :  The Story of Nate Saint, Martyred Missionary to Ecuador

Author: Russell T. Hitt 

Even after 60 years, the account of missionary pilot Nate Saint and his four friends martyred in Ecuador by the Auca tribe remains an inspiration. Not only is the story itself an edge-of-your-seat adventure, but Saint’s life story also grips readers and compels them to consider how they can live fully abandoned to God. 
“Here is proof that the life that was lived on Galilee’s dusty roads may be lived in the jungles of Ecuador—even in a twentieth-century airplane. Nate knew that there is only one thing worth expending one’s life for—the will of God. How did he set about to do this? Through Nate’s own clear-eyed writing, skillfully incorporated in Jungle Pilot, we have a satisfying answer.”

“More than a book about a man and a plane, Jungle Pilot is a well-balanced diet of humor, challenge, danger, spiritual power, and tragedy turned to triumph.”

“Russell Hitt has written an honest and believable account of the brief but adventure-packed life of the human and lovable jungle pilot, Nate Saint. On every page of Jungle Pilot, stroked boldly, is irrefutable proof that Jesus Christ is still daring to leave His Kingdom in the hands of plain people like ourselves!”

After graduating from the University of Michigan, Russell T. Hitt began his long, distinguished career in journalism as a reporter for the Detroit Free Press. He later embarked on a journey that took him to China and Paris, where he worked for an international publication. While in his 30s, after rededicating his life to Christ, Hitt earned a master’s degree in journalism from Northwestern University.

Stephen Saint was born in Quito, Ecuador, to Nate and Marj Saint—the middle of three Saint children (between Kathy and Phil). He was four years old when his father was killed by the Waodani Indians. When Steve was ten, Marj took her family to live in a Waodani village. After going to high school in Quito, Steve attended and graduated from Wheaton College. Steve and his wife, Ginny, have four children. Steve and Ginny took the family to Ecuador in the 1990s, where they lived with the Waodoni people. Later he founded I-TEC, a company that seeks to help indigenous people use technology to become independent.
