Notes from Ramallah 1939

Notes from Ramallah 1939

$ 18.00

From the first letter written on board ship, this is the account of an adventurous young American Quaker woman headed for the Arab world and neighboring lands before World War II. Woven throughout the letters and journal entries from Nancy Parker McDowell's year as a teacher at Ramallah Friends Girls School are images of the Palestinian people under British occupation. From accounts of pulling students out of the line of gunfire to stories of teaching baseball to her students, her notes reveal the full breadth of her experience with Palestinian culture.
