Narrated by Walter Cronkite, the story is artistically conveyed through interviews with those who know Ruth best, and is accented by her own impressive poetry. Her sisters describe their dramatic and formative days as children of missionaries in China. Listeners will hear romantic tales of Ruth's courtship with the young man who would become the greatest evangelist in the world. Then numerous national and world figures-all of whom hold her up as a great influence in their lives-offer their memorable encounters with Ruth.
