HEALING IN THE WILDERNESS  A History of the United Church Mission Hospitals, Burrows, Bob
3 Burrows, Bob HEALING IN THE WILDERNESS A History of the United Church Mission Hospitals
B. C. Harbour Publishing 2004 1550173383 / 9781550173383 First Edition Softcover Very Good+ 
Ex-library book, but still in very nice condition - sturdy laminated cover and usual ex-lib type markings. Pages clean and tight , light scuffing of covers. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 240 pages; This unforgettable story reveals how medical missionaries responded to crises, emergencies and sudden illnesses--including grizzly bear attacks and airplane crashes--without modern technology or urban hospitals. It portrays the small missions and infirmaries and tells how their staff handled life and death in the deep bush, on mountain ranges, in Native villages, on trackless prairies and on distant islands. It describes the sacrifices of devoted physicians, nurses and their families as they healed the sick and wounded, often under dreadful circumstances and in primitive conditions. Author Bob Burrows is uniquely qualified to relate this fascinating narrative of the United Church Mission Hospitals. A United Church minister for more than four decades, he has piloted an aircraft and captained a ship to deliver care to remote areas of British Columbia. He has also worked for both the BC and federal governments in positions of public trust dedicated to ensuring the human rights of aboriginal people, women and minority groups. Extensively researched and illustrated with many never before-seen photographs, Healing in the Wilderness will be a revelation and an inspiration to Canadians interested in the development of health care across the remotest regions of the country.
