Memoir of a young woman from Ohio who becomes a nurse and serves as a medical missionary in Korea in the early 20th Century. At the beginning of World War I, she is called to serve in a Red Cross medical unit on the Eastern Front, travelling there via the Siberian railroad. She returns to Korea after the armistice, just in time to witness the first stirrings of the Korean independence movement.
Delia Battles Lewis (1888-1959) was an Ohio native who earned her nursing degree at the Presbyterian Hospital's School of Nursing in New York (now the Columbia University School of Nursing). Following her medical mission service in Korea and her Red Cross work during World War I, she returned to Ohio and married William A. Lewis of Ashtabula; they had two children. She later returned to private nursing and remained a staunch advocate for the nursing profession throughout her life.
