This Jungle Doctor book will take you into adventures with a missionary doctor in Tanganyika (now Tanzania). The characters experience everyday problems in a jungle sort of way - with hilarious outcomes and practical applications.
The Jungle Doctor has many challenges to deal with - for example running a surgical theatre in the middle of the African Jungle. There are urgent operations to perform and life saving surgery needed - but they don't always have all the tools necessary. However, that doesn't stop them. 'Do it yourself' could well be the motto of the Mvumi hospital. A football, some parts of a stethoscope, an ancient foot pump and an empty pickle bottle provide, for virtually nothing, an anaesthetic machine which prevents suffering and saves lives.
Paul White was an Australian missionary doctor in Africa who learnt to clothe his Bible teaching in fables, creating stories with a timeless quality. When he returned home to Australia his stories were discovered and published to world-wide acclaim.
