The Hands and Feet of the Heart
By Hisako Nakamura; Buddhist Education Center, Orange County Buddhist Church, 2011
FROM BACK COVER:
"Hisako Nakamura was born on Novembere 25, 1897 in Takayama City, Japan. Located in a valley surrounded by the Japan Alps, winter temperatures there could fall to 10 to 15 degrees below freezing. At three years of age, frostbite on Hisako's foot turned to gangrene. This spread to her other foot and hands, eventually leaving her with short stumps for arms and legs."
