Synopsis: Excitement reigns in a colorfully illustrated truth-based chronicle of the adventures of Dr. John Symington, a turn-of-the-century doctor practicing in the tea plantation region of Bengal, where he faces tigers, rides elephants, and much more.

From School Library Journal: Grade 1-4-An adventure-filled day in the life of Dr. John Symington, who provided medical care on nine tea plantations in northern India 75 years ago. To tend the wounds of a worker mauled by a leopard, he traveled by elephant across a swollen river. After treating the injured man, the doctor faced an equally perilous return trip during which his mount had to outrun an enraged rogue elephant. Chesworth's watercolor illustrations add to the sense of urgency and danger. Yet the focus and tone seem curiously dated, almost a return to the perspective of "the white man's burden." The Indian who drove the elephant is referred to merely as "the mahout" throughout and named only once. All of the events are filtered through Symington's consiousness. Perhaps the story will find a niche in a unit on colonialism since it effectively mirrors the concentration on white experience. Such narrow possibilities restrict the value of this picture book for most collections and make it a low priority purchase.
