A Tool in His Hand

Ann M. Harrison

The journey from Nebraska to inland Aabia was half a world long, and the journey from frail boyhood to a career demanding physical, mental, and spiritual vigot was even more arduous.

The saga of the mission doctor whose life and work were so closely identified with the land of his labors that he was widely knoen as "Harrison of Arabia" is told in this book by the person who knew him best, his wife, Ann.

Paul Harrison spent more than forty years along the eastern edge of the Arabian peninsula.  During that time, the mission grew slowly, and schools and hospitals were built along the coast.  For a long time, however, inland Arabia was forbidden territory to the missionaries, until at last a letter arrived from King Ibn Saud, inviting "the esteemed Dr. Harrison" to bring his gift of medicine to central Arabia.
