Author: Jean Dye Johnson
Thirteen years before the martyrdom of Jim Elliot and his friends by Auca Indians in Ecuador, five members of New Tribes Mission laid down their lives while trying to reach the Ayore tribe of Bolivia with the Gospel of Christ. These men were Cecil Dye, Bob Dye, Dave Bacon, George Hosback, and Eldon Hunter.
God Planted Five Seeds was written by Jean Dye Johnson, widow of one of the five martyrs. It tells the story of how a permanent, friendly contact was established with that Ayore tribe and how the widows learned the truth concerning the death of the five men.
