KIRKUS REVIEW

A frankly adulatory biography of Katherine Neel, who became a medical missionary to Mexico for the Associated Reformed Presbyterian Church, who was followed there by James Dale, whom she had once refused, but whom she finally married. A true partnership, for he was also a missionary, their marriage worked out a double career of the spiritual and physical care of, first, Rio Verde, then Tampico and finally the Indian Mission, for training and educating the Indian boys and girls. How they broke through superstition, the religious and native fears, practiced true good neighborliness offers a real lift.
