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.

Set of three books includes:

  • Jungle Doctor Goes West
  • Jungle Doctor's Case Book
  • Jungle Doctor Sees Red
