KALAR, KALAR, HEH KAY KALAR! A young boy’s shrill voice could be heard over the lonely mountains of the Burmese heartland. Walking backward, the boy continued his call, searching desperately for an elusive substance known to the natives as his “Kalar.”
These and other bizarre practices happen daily in Burma, India. Author Eric B. Hare brings many personal stories to life from his years of missionary service. Included in this book are famous stories such as Thara’s “Bunny Brand” medicine, escaping the Fry Smell, and other mythical superstitions of these fascinating Karen people.
Experience firsthand the mission field through these pages as Thara’s family takes the word of God to this devil-worshiping land. Read as the missionaries begin a school, baptize a haunted house, and begin a brass band.
