Popular for a Reason
In the 1940s there was probably no more crucial calling than that of a missionary, no more intriguing place than Africa, and a no more gratifying task than that of a doctor. Mix the three together and you have a series of mesmerizing children's books that have inspired multiple generations of children to serve God regardless of the cost.
Bringing Medical Help to a Primitive Culture
Born in 1910, Paul White was an extraordinary Australian missionary who labored several years as a physician in the African nation of Tanzania. The Jungle Doctor series is based on his experiences working in the bush and recounts the struggles of providing medicine in a primitive colonial hospital.
Epidemics, Drug Dealers, Witchdoctors, Wildlife... vs. The Gospel
Epidemics weren't the only battle the doctor faced. Satan used drug dealers, witchdoctors, and menacing wildlife in an attempt to choke out the doctor's Gospel message. Yet Paul, clearly a gifted communicator, effectively shared God's love with Tanzanian families in a unique way that made complete sense to them. If your family likes read-aloud books, know that these are some of the best, for there is much to discuss in nearly every chapter. From the idiosyncrasies of the Australian language and how diseases are spread, to the dark side of unbelief, each volume is an education in itself.
Addictive for All Ages
First published in the late 1940s and early 1950s, the Jungle Doctor series has been translated into more than eighty languages including Braille, and is newly reprinted for another generation. While the reading level is for ages 10 to 12, these addictive books are captivating for all ages.
Jungle Doctor And the Whirlwind
There is a stranger in the hospital compound - his pockets brimming with money; his clothes brighter than the sunset… and Maradadi is as full of trouble as a scorpion. Will the staff be deceived by his charm and his smooth words of fame and fortune? As the Jungle Doctor fights an epidemic, that is sweeping the East African countryside like a whirlwind, he finds he must also fight the destructive influence of this evil intruder.
Jungle Doctor on the Hop
The Witchdoctor's magic appears to be working. A dozen people have already died, and many more are falling prey to this mysterious illness that is plaguing the village. What is this killer disease that is more powerful than an angry elephant, more terrifying than a mighty leopard, more deadly than a roaring lion? Will the Jungle doctor be able to fit together the pieces of the puzzle in time?
Jungle Doctor Spots a Leopard
Fear has gripped the hearts of the villagers. A killer leopard is moving closer and closer- a leopard which has only four toes on one foot. Old ex-chief Madole is also missing a finger. Could it be that he is using witchcraft to turn himself into a leopard, seeking revenge on those who took away his power?
Jungle Doctor's Crooked Dealings
More is going on in the hospital compound than meets the eye. Tension is high as the Jungle Doctor performs some delicate and dangerous operations. The troublemaker, Woga, keeps making threats. And to make matters worse, there is a killer lion on the prowl. What can a little boy with a twisted face, a crooked back, and a smiling dog teach them about courage?
Jungle Doctor's Enemies
Native drums beat an eerie rhythm through the darkness of the jungle. The blind boy Mubofu had been secretly bringing children from hostile Chief Chikoti's village to the hospital for treatment - but now the boy has mysteriously disappeared. Is this part of Chikoti's evil attack against the Doctor and his medicine? Will the Jungle Doctor prevail against the power of witchcraft?
Jungle Doctor in Slippery Places
Dr. Daudi Matama is worried. His trusted assistant has stolen many hospital supplies and is reportedly working in the black market near the slippery shores of the forbidden Cooking Pot. Meanwhile, the villagers are under threat of famine and starvation from the millions of weaver birds which continue to attack their crops. Can the harvest be saved? Is there hope for the wayward Yakobo?
Paul White was an Australian missionary doctor in Africa who learned to clothe his Bible teaching in fables, creating stories with a timeless quality. When he returned home to Australia his stories were discovered and published to world-wide acclaim. Here are six newly reprinted thrilling adventures from Paul White based in Mvumi hospital, Tanzania.
Jungle Doctor's Africa
Jungle Doctor and his team have their work cut out for them as they tackle meningitis, leprosy and other illnesses. It's just that very often in Africa each new day brings joy and sadness, love and loss. But with the love of Jesus Christ there is always hope.
Jungle Doctor Pulls a Leg
A sudden flash flood brings the Jungle Doctor into some serious trouble as he and a couple of the Mvumi hospital staff go to the rescue of a dangerously ill patient.
In the African jungle, short journeys can become life threatening when the weather takes a turn for the worse. But it's not only the weather that is against them, there are many other difficulties for the Jungle Doctor to tackle. Even small cuts can become serious infections - and infections can lead to sickness, even death if not treated properly.
However, this time the Jungle Doctor has help at hand with the new flying ambulance and the first radio phone to be operated at Mvumi Mission Hospital.
Eyes on Jungle Doctor
Ng'wagu who for years has lived in "Utitu" – "The Land of Darkness" – comes to the Jungle Hospital to see what Jungle Doctor could do for him with his “instruments of iron.”
Truly the Bwana has strong medicine for eyes,” had said his friends. But Berenge, the witchdoctor had grown rich by his own brand of “strong medicine for eyes” – so strong that it meant almost certain blindness for his patients – and he is not letting Ng'wagu out of his clutches so easily.
The story tells how his evil deeds at length were thwarted, and how Ng'wagu found light, not only for his eyes, but also for his soul.
Jungle Doctor Meets a Lion
The smell of lion around the campfire warns the Jungle Doctor of danger and when he comes across a trail of blood his fears are confirmed. Someone has been attacked by Simba, the Lion and is in desperate need of medical treatment. While everyone in the village believes the injured man is as good as dead will the Jungle Doctor save him?
Jungle Doctor Stings a Scorpion
Another thrilling adventure from Paul White based in Mvumi hospital, Tanzania.
Yet again the Jungle Doctor has a battle to fight while trying to save people's lives. Infections and disease are defeated with medicine and good hygiene but Nje – the Witchdoctor cooks the stings of Scorpions in his evil potions. Instead of bringing health and joy to his patients he brings sickness, fear and even death. However the time comes when the Witchdoctor urgently needs the help of the Jungle Doctor himself. Nje's life depends on it.
Jungle Doctor on Safari
Yet again the Jungle Doctor is in the thick of a battle for people's lives. There is so much that good medicine can do to tackle injuries and disease yet local customs and superstition hold back the hospital staff at one mission hospital from saving one woman's life. The doctors and nurses have to work in poor operating conditions with very limited equipment and drugs but despite everything other lives are saved! However, sometimes it seems that everything is going wrong; especially when the old hospital car continues to break down. But throughout it all the Jungle Doctor and his staff know that God answers prayer!
Jungle Doctor Looks for Trouble
The Jungle Doctor is in the thick of adventure and danger yet again. This time there is a vicious village to contend with and someone has been stabbed. But with God's help and his answers to prayer the Jungle Doctor and his medical team save lives, and not only that, they are used time and time again to share the real life saving truth of Jesus Christ.
Jungle Doctor Operates
The Jungle Doctor has many challenges to deal with - for example running a surgical theatre in the middle of the African Jungle. There are urgent operations to perform and life saving surgery needed - but they don't always have all the tools necessary. However, that doesn't stop them. ‘Do it yourself' could well be the motto of the Mvumi hospital. A football, some parts of a stethoscope, an ancient foot pump and an empty pickle bottle provide, for virtually nothing, an anaesthetic machine which prevents suffering and saves lives.
Jungle Doctor Attacks Witchcraft
The Witchdoctors and tribal superstition are causing trouble for the Jungle Doctor once again - but armed with the truth, the doctor and his staff are about to open the eyes of the local people to what is causing their problems - and it isn't curses and spells.
Jungle Doctor to the Rescue
There are dark and dangerous events at foot in Mvumi. The Jungle Doctor not only has to look out for the needs of his sick patients but he also has to keep an eye out for his staff. There is a poisoner on the loose and they are all in danger as Dawa, the witchdoctor has vengeance on his mind.
Jungle Doctor Goes West
Jungle Doctor becomes ill himself and has to rest and then recover by travelling to another part of Tanganika. Mboga, his assistant tries to be helpful but often with rather disastrous but sometimes amusing results.
Jungle Doctor's Case Book
Day after day disease and illness walk through the doors of the Mvumi hospital. A deaf man is cured remarkably quickly and his hearing completely restored by one visit to the Jungle Doctor. Others have more serious illnesses and take longer to heal, especially those who have been 'treated' by the witchdoctor beforehand. Abcesses, broken arms, cataracts and burns all urgently require medical assistance. Even someone who needs spectacles or false teeth can be helped by the Jungle Doctor. But each arrival is more than just another 'patient' - they are people and they all have a story - and each one goes into the Jungle Doctor's casebook.
Jungle Doctor Sees Red
As the fiery red sun sets over the dry sands of Tanzania the Jungle Doctor is once again in the middle of danger and violence. He is definitely seeing red but he is there to bring the message of peace as well as medicine... but will anyone listen? As antibiotics are dropped from the air in a pilot's pocket-handkerchief, desperate journeys end in tragedy and still others give their last strength to ensure life. These examples of sacrifice are a sad but important illustration of the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ.
