Summary
"Delight Rice, the hearing daughter of deaf parents, was a pioneering teacher of deaf-blind pupils at the Wisconsin and Ohio Schools for the Deaf during the early 1900s. In 1907, during the Spanish-American War, the U.S. government sent her to establish a deaf education system in the Philippines, which was occupied by American military forces. Initially unable to find any deaf children in Manila and surrounding provinces, she and American constabularies ventured into the interior mountains, heavily populated by wild, hostile headhunting tribes, in search of deaf children. They rode U.S. Army wagons and on burros for more than 1,000 miles on their successful mission. This book chronicles Delight Rice's life and legendary contributions to deaf education in the United States and the Philippines"--Book jacket
