This is a work which deserves wider 'worldwide recognition'.
Jackie felt a 'calling' and acted on it.
Chasing The Dragon is a work and testament to selfless commitment and human kindness towards others.
Jackies work was highlighted by the worlds media -with the BBC entering her world of Hong Kongs 'Walled City' in 1968.
Jackie found herself 'commissioned to work' 'in a den of all things unspoken of' to the outside world.
It is a grim tale of hardcore crime which would frighten mere mortals. Of Vice - drug abuse - extortion.
For a young British woman to enter into an environment that would test any human being - the success story that follows is gripping reading.
It is a story about changed lives - from the grip of Heroin addiction to freedom for those that Jackie encounters. Often her life is threatened yet by a 'greater power' than her own she survives.
Jackie faith leads others to walk away from their personal hells and to read their progress as the book unfolds is deeply moving.
Once you start to read this book - you will be helplessly compelled to read the book from cover to cover.
The Walled City in Hong Kong is no more - it has long gone - but the memories contained in this book will live with you forever if you have any thread of human compassion.
I would also highly recommend this book to those who are suffering from the nightmare of drug addiction.
May I also recommend it to Drug addiction Programme directors and for those who lead self help groups.
For the drug addicts - I would say to you there is hope - but you must believe .
Jackies work will help you see there is a way out.
But you must grasp the opportunity.
This is another story that should be made into a full block buster movie! I have always thought that! So Powerful & what a Testimony Is there anyone out there that can make this happen? It's a must!
How can one woman achieve so much that had bewildered every previous attempt for change by the Governments & law forces. Poverty, drugs, prostitution, satanic rituals, destitution, abuse & horror on every front. This true story charts one woman's stand in the face of impossible odds. Pullingers profound experience & powerful testimony, offers hope, especially to those who believe they are too far gone to be forgiven. Rise into a new life of joy, peace, freedom & love through Jesus Christ. Repentance means to turn around & make good your life choices through Christ! & `The Great Command'
