At the Foot of the Snows: A Journey of Faith and Words among the Kham-Speaking People of Nepal

David E. Watters

Product Description

At the Foot of the Snows tells the inspiring story of an American family living among the virtually unknown Kham Magar of Nepal, developing a deep bond of friendship that transcended their cultural divide. Through years of study and hard work, they translated Scripture into the Kham language, igniting a spark of interest in the gospel that would fan to life through years of persecution. Through it all, David and Nancy Watters struggled to demonstrate that gospel to these people who lived, in the words of the Khams, "at the foot of the snows."

  1. Love this book! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Mar 2014

    Rarely do I love a book so much that I order over 20 copies so that I can give them to friends. But this is that book!

    My own experience with Seattle Book Company, though, let me try to describe as fairly as possible: Even though it took 3 months without any response to my emails and calls, the books did arrive in the end, and all is well that ends well. I'd like to imagine that this was an untypical experience, but it's not like you can get the books anywhere else, so if you have a similar experience, be assured the book is worth the wait and the silence, it's that good.
