Ruth Hemenway wanted to dedicate her life to service, and in particular to service to the Chinese. She did so through the church only because it was a means to her end. She was often at odds with other missionaries because she had no desire to convert the Chinese to Christianity. She resented their bigotry in considering the Chinese inferior.
Hemenway's descriptive prose paints an intriguing picture of the rural Yangtze Valley and Chungking, their countrysides, their peoples, and the warring factions fighting to control these areas. Details of her practice provide insights into state of medicine at the time. The book is illustrated by Hemenway's own sketches and pictures.
If you are interested in intercultural studies, revolutionary China or missionary medicine, it is worth tracking down a copy of this book.Ruth V. Hemenway, M.D.: A Memoir of Revolutionary China, 1924-1941 Overview
