Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0933380305, Paperback)

My childhood was spent in Barrow, Alaska, where my father was an archeologist. Later, in California, I met my husband who was born in India. After his medical and surgical education, we returned to open a mission hospital built by his father in the jungles of Central India. In 1942 we were evacuated to the United States, where, as a reserve officer in the Army Medical Corps, Dr. Casberg immediately was assigned to a military hospital unit in North Africa. Following the invasion of Sicily, he was transferred to the post of Station Surgeon in Chungking, China, under General Stillwell. He then served with the Dixie Mission as an American liaison with the Chinese Communist Forces, joining Chairman Mao's famous 8th Route Army behind the Japanese lines. These associations, established by our family before and since World War II. opened avenues of friendship which have persisted throughout the years. "Women of My Other Worlds" comprises twenty-four vignettes of women from six countries: Alaska, America, China, India, Nepal, and Tibet. This is my attempt to give our American mothers an intimate feeling for some of the women I have touched. They range from the lowest to the highest, from the poorest to the richest. I will have succeeded if the reader's curiosity has been nudged by these "portraits with word strokes." Snatch a moment between bed-making and the dishes in the sink. Read and love the world's women just a little more. --- from book's back cover
