KIRKUS REVIEW

On the assumption that medical service may be unavailable in certain tropical areas, this handbook for home use, gives more extensive information than usual on diseases which may be contracted, emergencies (even obstetrical) which may be faced. Opening with suggestions for equipment to be taken to the tropics, familiarizing facts about homes, servants, wives and children, this deals largely with foods and diets to be followed, and specifics of care and treatment for skin diseases, malaria and blackwater and typhus fever, intestinal diseases, leprosy and yaws, first aid, etc. A book for consultation and urgency usage for those who live -- or plan to live- in tropical areas.
