About the Author
Paul White was an Australian missionary doctor in Africa early in the 20th century, who gained great skill at teaching the Bible through creative stories based on his missions work. These tales have a timeless quality which has captivated readers for three generations now. When Dr. White returned home to Australia, his stories were discovered and published with an enthusiastic, world-wide reception. Children of all ages delight in the Jungle Doctor series, which are written for readers about ages 9-13, but adults love their creative stories, and they make superb read-aloud stories to children from 5-8, who will have no difficulty understanding them!
Review by Noel Piper, wife of John Piper, of the first book: Jungle Doctor and the Whirlwind:
“Habari? (What news?)
I read that Swahili greeting & response numerous times in the Jungle Doctor and the Whirlwind story. At first I thought, “That’s not so different than a typical quick, polite, superficial greeting here.” But there is a difference. The American greeting goes “How are you?” . . . “Fine.” And that’s it. But the Swahili greeting often doesn’t end with Nzuri.
It might go something like this: “What’s the news?” . . . “Good. . . . But in our village many people are dying.”
That’s one of the reasons I appreciate books about other cultures: I learn about my own.
I’ve visited hospitals in Africa and I’ve written about medical missionary Helen Roseveare in Faithful Women and Their Extraordinary God. So I could imagine pretty easily the rugged, challenging setting of Dr. Paul White‘s stories from Tanganyika (now Tanzania) in the late 1930s when he was there.
Officially this book is for ages 10 and up. As I listened I realized, Yes it’s good for preteens and early teens, but it’s definitely not too young for me. I kept thinking of different sorts of people who’d get drawn into Jungle Doctor and the Whirlwind, of the Jungle Doctor Series.
