Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Born to an orphan train child, Anna escaped her troubled roots as a Chicago nurse, but big-city glamour was not for her. After a blind, seven-year correspondence, she married a South African rancher, moved to the banks of the Orange River, then homesteaded in Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). Anna and her husband made the bricks for their home, battled the leopards and baboons that threatened their crops,· and negotiated the terms of daily existence with Natives. Tragedy led them to Mt. Selinda Mission where they labored to improve medicine and agriculture for all Rhodesians. Through Anna's letters, we share the tragedy and inspiration of her African journey."--P. [4] of t.p.
