FROM SAND DUNES TO MOUNTAIN TOPS
The story of Bishop John Victor Samuel
About the Book
Some people read history as bystanders. Others contribute to history. This book by Mrs. Shirin Samuel, examines the life of a man who did both. This book will serve as an inspiration to others to create their own histories, in lives of service and in giving back to the community. All in the hopes that that will further influence others to do the same.
