In 1935, a young woman left the comfort and security of home to take her first job in an isolated village, which was the home of the Mamalilikulla people and two dedicated English ladies who operated a small mission outpost and preventorium for children suffering from tuberculosis. Shocked by isolation and the primitive facilities, Hughina spent many hours documenting the details and perceptions of her days there. "I knew I had witnessed things that should not be forgotten", she said. The result is her account of two years in a world that no longer exists -- a first hand historic perspective and coming-of-age story of a gutsy young woman.
