A fascinating insight into China and the culture and lives of the Nosu. Wales was part of a medical missionary team in the 50s before being expelled by the Communists.

Update: The info below recounts the quote that grabbed my attention and made me want to read the book.

This book is a gripping account of a small team (one family, two singles) who pioneered a mission work in an unreached area of China, that physically took days to reach, and involved much danger & sometimes death (just to get there).

Although they were allowed less than 2 years there before the pullout, as the lady below wrote, "there was a happy ending."

A true story of great courage and trust. Joan and her companions were extremely lucky to escape from China in 1952. Not only was their winter journey through the Great Mountains treacherous but there were many who risked their lives by providing lodgings on their way. Joan's return to China in more recent times showed that she was not forgotten and neither was the message that she took there in the late 1940s, the message of a god of forgiveness and love.
