Illustrated with Black and White Photographs. Foreword by Nobel Laureate, Dr Linus Pauling. Gift inscription to front free endpaper. 145 pages For eight years Dr Kalokerinos worked among the Aborigines of Collarenebri yet, in spite of his efforts, year by year the number of children dying increased. In despair he left his practice for the opal fields of Coober Pedy. The experience of living in close contact with the Aborigines triggered a new insight into their special physical and dietary needs, so that on his return to Collarenebri in 1967 he found their vitamin deficiencies and immunological problems showed themselves in strange and usually treatable ways. This is the story of his discovery and the battles that he faced in implementing it.
