Home in Honduras: The Blumenscheins Pioneer in La Suiza
"John Blumenschein, a successful gynecologist with his own clinic in Independence, Missouri, was a man with a dream that has had far-reaching effects. Selling his practice in 1957, he and his wife, Marian, and their five children left the States for Latin America. They didn't have a definite destination in mind, but they did know it would be somewhere that had no school, no medical facilities, and no church. They found it in a beautiful upland valley in central Honduras---the poorest of all Central American countries. What happened there is a story of trial and tragedy and triumph. Home in Honduras is just a segment of that story---the early days of adjusting to life in a primitive setting, of planting and building, of teaching and learning, of helping and being helped."--Dust jacket flap.
