From the Foreword-

"In the bitter-sweet relations between China and America the bridging work of a few Americans stand out. One of these was Utah's Helen Foster Snow (1907-1997)... Her niece, Sheril Bischoff has produced an impressive photo-essay, Bridging, that outlines the importance of Helen's work in China during the critical decade of the 1930's when the Chinese were struggling for survival against Japan's invasion... Among other things, she played a crucial role in a student movement (1935) that forestalled an early Japanese takeover in north China. Then she was initiator and prime mover in the cooperative movement (Gung-ho or INDUSCO) that helped sustain China in the dark days of the war with Japan."
