Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

June Potter Durkee is the daughter of F. M. ("Duke") Potter, a Rhodes scholar who for thirty years was a major force in Reformed Church mission policy and administration, and who served as secretary of the Board of Foreign Missions until his death in 1952. Just prior to the outbreak of World War II, ten-year-old June accompanied her parents on a tour of the Reformed Church's mission fields in the Middle East and India. "Travels of an American Girl is the book she wrote of that experience at the ripe old age of twelve.

In these pages June recounts her eventful journey from New York to England, France, Egypt, Lebanon, Iraq, the Arabian Gulf, and on into India. June's exciting story of her adventures and her thoughts about the people and new cultures she saw along the way will captivate readers her age. But this volume will also be of historical interest to everyone, for it offers a view of the world on the brink of war and of mission work in foreign lands through the eyes of a gifted young lady.

About the Author

Along with raising five children she has been a professional singer, a voice teacher, and a choir director for the Reformed Church in Metuchen, New Jersey.
