This book records the School Medical Service's venture to develop six open-air schools when malnutrition and tuberculosis were rife in the early 20th century. Barrow and Geraldine Cadbury founded the first schools where pupils benefited from fresh air, rest, exercise and nourishing food. "The text is both revealing and at times intensely moving ... an absorbing story which deserves a broad readership." Select Magazine
