Letters and memoirs of Hyla S. Watters.
"Hyla S. Watters' memoir of two and a half decades as a woman surgeon on the Yangtze provides an insightful, colorful record of China's troubled era before the Communist revolution. An American teacher of medicine and modernization, this humanist observer and gifted raconteur informs and startles with salient images of a unique people reeling at the loss of their old order, struggling against despair and surviving to build anew."--p.[4] of cover.
