This is a biography of a very intelligent, warm and determined woman. A daughter of a plantation owner in South India, Mary Verghese decided early in life that she wanted to be useful to her newly independent country. She went to medical school and became a surgeon, but shortly after graduation she was in an accident that made her a paraplegic. How she reconstructed her life and learned to perform delicate surgery while seated in a wheel chair and indeed became a fully qualified rehabilitation specialist are just some of the tremendous successes included. The tan and marbled binding has no wear but the spine is tilted forward a bit. The jacket has two tears about 1" long, and the back appears to have gotten wet. This did not damage the book at all. The spine is lightly sunned on the jacket. An inscription is written on the front end papers. Price not clipped. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
