Missions! The word still flashes images of thatched-roofed huts and wild animals in many Western minds, years after the average missionary has stopped seeing those things in real mission life. 

Yet here is a heart-warming story about a real mission—albeit not a church-related mission—in twentieth-century America under conditions that will thrill the imagination of the most enthusiastic reader of foreign mission stories. The “missionary,” British midwife Betty Lester, left her homeland to come to the backwoods of Kentucky and serve its people with a dedication that would be a credit to any Christian missionary, anywhere in the world. 

Author Joyce Hopp, herself a nurse, follows Betty over the back trails of the Kentucky mountains into the cabins of mothers about to be, showing you the drama of childbirth under the most primitive conditions.
