A strong, intimate portrait of this great humanitarian.
At the suggestion of Dr. Schweitzer himself, the author has created a strong and intimate portrait of this great humanitarian, known the world over as a philosopher and theologian, an author and lecturer, an organist of genius, as well as a skillful doctor, who has devoted the greater part of his life to the care of the natives of French Equatorial Africa.
Fact were checked and impressions crystalized, during the author's two extended visits to Gunsbach in Alsace and Dr. Schweitzer's hospital headquarters in Lambarene. The result is sensitive nature and questioning mind, a young man of versatie talents and a mature man of dedicated purpose and true retness of spirit. The vivid, colorful prose brings to life the background of the small Alsatian Village of Albert Schweitzer's childhood as well as the lush, steaming jungle of africa, the scene of his life and his work, his thoughts and his dreams for over forty years.
After reading the manuscript for this book, Dr. Schweitzer wrote the author: "I found it very sympathetic in its simplicity. One feels that you know the atmosphere and that you know me as I really am."What more satisfying tribute ould an author ask? It is inevitable that the reader will share Dr. Schweitzer's own feeling about this warm and understanding personal history of one of the greatest men alive today.
Erica Anderson's exquisite photographs illustrate the varied aspects of Dr. Schweitzer's life and the versatility of his genius.
