"Richer By India brings missionary work to life with direct personal impact. Here are the faces, the daily frustrations and rewards, the down-to-earth human realities of an American family's experiences in a far off land, told with beautiful simplicity and with a rare poetic awareness. Some of the situations Myra Scovel describes are frightening, some are hilarious, all are of absorbing interest, because, right from the start, the author establishes contact with the reader. This book is a sequel to The Chinese Ginger Jars, a continuing best seller which tells of the Scovel family's experiences in China."; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
