2 Burrows, Bob Healing in the Wilderness A History of the United Church Mission Hospitals
Madeira Park, BC Harbour Publishing 2004 1550173383 / 9781550173383 First Edition Paperback Near Fine Signed by Author
Signed by Author; Inscribed by the author on the title page. A bright, solid book, appears unread.; Trade PB; B&W Photographs; 9 X 6 X 0.60 inches; 240 pages; "This unforgettable story reveals how medical missionaries responded to crises, emergencies and sudden illnesses--including grizzly bear attacks and airplane crashes--without modern technology or urban hospitals. It portrays the small missions and infirmaries and tells how their staff handled life and death in the deep bush, on mountain ranges, in Native villages, on trackless prairies and on distant islands. It describes the sacrifices of devoted physicians, nurses and their families as they healed the sick and wounded, often under dreadful circumstances and in primitive conditions. Author Bob Burrows is uniquely qualified to relate this fascinating narrative of the United Church Mission Hospitals. A United Church minister for more than four decades, he has piloted an aircraft and captained a ship to deliver care to remote areas of British Columbia. He has also worked for both the BC and federal governments in positions of public trust dedicated to ensuring the human rights of aboriginal people, women and minority groups. "

Inscribed by Martha McCracken Howard, one of Josiah McCracken's daughters. ; 276 pages; Joe was an All-American football star and a medal winner in the shot put and the hammer throw in the 1900 Olympics. But it was as a medical missionary to China, under the auspices of the Christian Association of the University of Pennsylvania that he found his calling. He made his most lasting mark [leading] the medical college of St. John's University and [helping] Chinese refugees who flooded into Shanghai after the Japanese invasion. [T]he book is just as much ... about his wife Helen and the trials and joys of raising eight children. It is also the story of their third daughter, Mary, who was crippled by polio before she was two and who fought courageously for over thirty years to live a normal life. Taken together, they become the story of a large, close-knit missionary family in China during the turbulent years of 1907-1941.

5 Graham, Elizabeth Medicine Man to Missionary 'Missionaries as Agents of Change among the Indians of Southern Ontario, 1784-1867"
Toronto, ON Peter Martin Associates 1975 0887780784 / 9780887780783 First Paperback Edition Softcover Very Good 
Pages yellowed but card covers show only light wear ; A tight solid book. ; Trade PB; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 125 pages; "The missionaries who brought Christianity to the Indians of Southern Ontario also attempted to introduce 'civilization' in accordance with European models. In fulfilling their mission they played a crucial role as agents of change in Indian religion, education, politics, economics, technology and medicine. That they also acted as a protective buffer between the Indians and the exploitative traders and government agents was apparently not regarded as contradictory. By the end of the eighty-three year period studied the Indian people had moved from relative independence to a condition of isolation in reserve communities and dependendence upon a foreign government. Using missionary and government reports, letters, and diaries of the period as source material Dr. Graham traces the movements of various Indian groups and analyzes some of the elements involved in this confrontation between two vastly different cultures."
