By Alice Shepard Riggs with foreword by Constance Shepard Jolly

Dr. Fred D. Shepard was a popular American medical missionary who spent most of his adult life working in the Ottoman Empire at Aintab, central Turkey. He turned his mission station into a major relief center where he treated local Armenians, Kurds, and Turks. In 1915 he contracted typhus working amongst victims of the Armenian Genocide and died in December that year.

The present republication includes the entire 1920 text and photographs, as well as a new foreword by Constance Shepard Jolly. The new work has been repaginated and includes a new map based on a hand drawn copy in the original publication.
