The intensely thrilling account written by Dr. Harvey J. Howard, professor of ophthalmology at the Peking Union Medical College, of his experiences and impressions when he was captured by Chinese bandits and remained with them for approximately ten weeks during 1925 has already been presented to the world through newspaper syndication. Publication in book form makes it generally available. It merits a high place among contributions of medical authorship in general literature. The story is told with a fine sense of dramatic quality. It opens with the capture of the boat by the bandits, and details with scientific exactitude the progress of events until the rescue of Dr. Howard by soldiers of the Chinese army. The illustrations are a valuable addition to the work. The book may be read with interest not only by physicians but also by every one who has an interest in adventure.
