Maharajahs, Monkeys and Mangoes
Life in rural India in the 1920's had many challenges for Margaret Stevens, the young wife of a medical missionary. This is her story based on letters that she wrote to her mother every week, describing life in the rural western plains of India from 1919 to 1929. As she developed relationships with Indians of all classes from Maharajahs to the untouchables she found herself teaching, helping, and mediating disputes. During those years she matured from a young bride to a responsible woman able to meet whatever challenges life brings her.
