Fascinating account of one of America's pioneer public health workers. Orphaned after his survival of the Johnstown flood, Heiser became a physician and immediately started public health work for the US Government. His acquaintances include Edward VII, the King of Siam and Emperor Haile Saillase. A truly amazing story of adventure and American idealism before and between the World Wars. ( )
