KIRKUS REVIEW

Remember the missionary doctor in Jerome Beatty's Americans All Over? This is his story, pungently told, of 29 years in a country which was unfriendly, ignorant, antagonistic. Against all odds, he stayed on. This is the story of how a medical unit operates, of costs, equipment, staff and patients; of the cases and how they are treated; of local rulers, incidents, excitements... Good reading, with elements that should take it outside the field of doctors' books only, and have some plus sale for mission study groups, as he has an interesting and intelligent slant on medical-missionary work.
