Book description
Author Maurice Harvey returns with another collection of exciting firsthand stories from his time as a missionary and as the Bible Society photojournalist. He recounts many of his firsthand experiences over the years as an international photojournalist in Into the Great Unknown.

The memoir begins with Maurice leaving the safety of his New Zealand home as a young man in the 1960s and heading into deepest Africa—bound for the war-ravaged Congo region. From there, the story continues as Maurice travels across the African continent, through post-Communist Eastern Europe, and then into Asia. His final stop is the mysterious and formidable state of North Korea.

Told with compassion and charm, these stories reflect an eye for the quirky as well the poignant. Leaving New Zealand isolated and far away from everywhere else, was for a young man in 1960, truly an adventure into the unknown. But with the strong assurance that God was with him, it became an adventure of excitement and great enjoyment.
