Published by Rick Melick
This book is the life sketch of Otterbein T. Deever, my great grandfather, and was written in 1962. It shows that even before he was born God was leading his family in their trek across the wilderness territory from West Virginia to the prairies of Kansas back in 1857.

To read the book is to sit again at the feet of a grandfather telling his grandchildren the story of.the family struggles and disappointments typical to the prairies and common to pioneers. He shows that these struggles became the very fiber which made this family, one of the early pioneer founders of the Evangelical United Brethren Church in Kansas.

This story is told in the hope that it will help others discover that "God Leads the Way."

Dr. Deever's experiences have been wide and varied as a pastor, denominational youth leader, the General Secretary of Board of Christian Education, and Board of Evangelism.
