” This is the story of six young Americans who decided to travel, without pay or material recompense of any kind, to a remote part of the world in order to combat the two greatest evils afflicting it: disease and Communism. When they received an invitation to bring their medical team to the distant kingdom of Laos, they knew they would be going to the very edge of tomorrow.” ( from the front flap of dustcover)
