About this title


Two young Quaker relief workers meet and fall in love while rebuilding devastated communities in post-WWII France and Poland. Journey of the Wild Geese is comprised of letters written by Madeleine Yaude and Edwin "Red" Stephenson to one another and friends back home, as they experience the highs and lows of offering relief to war-damaged communities, test their beliefs and their faith, and build a lifelong love affair. The book is handsomely illustrated with more than 50 photographs, plus maps and notes from over forty years of successful marriage.

About the Author:

Madeleine Yaude was born in September 1918 in Rochester, New York, where she attended high school and Rochester University, graduating in 1940. Following brief employment at the Eastman Music School, she moved to Philadelphia to work for the American Friends Service Committee. Edwin Stephenson was born in April 1918 in Wayne County, North Carolina. He graduated from Guilford College in 1941 and following a brief period in graduate school at the University of Michigan, joined Civilian Public Service (CPS) as a conscientious objector to the war. Madeleine and Red met on the USS Brazil, bound for Europe and relief work, in 1946. Journey of the Wild Geese documents their experiences in France, Germany and Poland. They were married in Switzerland in 1947, and in 1948 they moved to Berkeley, California where they joined the Society of Friends (Quakers) and raised a family while working for peace and social justice, at the American Friends Service Committee and Planned Parenthood among other places. In 1978 along with several other Quaker families they built an intentional community in Santa Rosa called Monan's Rill, where Edwin Stephenson currently resides. Madeleine Stephenson died in September 1993.
