The smell of lion around the campfire warns the Jungle Doctor of danger and when he comes across a trail of blood, his fears are confirmed. Someone has been attacked by Simba, the lion, and is in desperate need of medical treatment. While everyone in the village believes the injured man is as good as dead, the Jungle Doctor thinks differently. With some modern medicine, and quick thinking, the young lion hunter is saved from death, but there are other things that the injured hunter needs saving from, and that’s what the mission hospital at Mvumi is all about: saving lives and souls. Read more about Dr. White and the Jungle Doctor books in the description of the Jungle Doctor set. Ages 8-9, Grades 3-4.
