One description of the ancient vehicle on which Jungle Doctor had to rely for his missions of mercy was "a partly animated collection of spare parts." The Africans called it "Sukuma," which is Swahili for "push"! Yet 1,000 miles separated the first from the last of the seven hospitals for which Jungle Doctor was responsible; in addition, journeys had to be made to outlying villages to visit sufferers who were too ill to be brought to hosital.

In this book Jungle Doctor continues his thrilling story and tells of some of his adventures "on safari" in a country where in a few hours a solid track might be changed into a sea of red mud; or a channel six feet deep might be cut across a road by flood water from the hills. And at the end of each journey someone was anxiously waiting - in desperate need, not merely of physical healing, but of the Message that brings life to the soul.

Throughout it all runs the cheerfulness, the imperturbabilty and the strong sense of humour of the Africans. Our old friends Daudi, Samson, James the "Ward Sister," and the rest, are here again, and as the panorama of need and opportunity passes before us we wonder as we see how much can be done for so many by so few.
