This book consists of a series of most interesting letters, written by Dr. Senn while traveling, which first appeared serially in The Journal. Beginning with Hawaii, Dr. Senn describes the manner and customs of the peoples, with diseases peculiar to the various countries visited. He writes instructively of the leper colony in Hawaii, giving an eloquent tribute to the work of Father Damien, and describes the condition of medical education in Australia and in India. He speaks highly of the work done by the men of the Indian Medical Service, especially in regard to research work in cholera and plague serums and antivenin. This book is well illustrated, showing characteristic people, buildings and scenery.
