Sister Joan Bailey, CHM recorded the memoirs of Martina Swift Bailey on cassette tapes. She later transcribed these to her computer. In 2009 Ralph Roesler took on the project of editing these computer files into a format appropriate for publishing. He did not change any of the text; he just corrected spelling mistakes, punctuation, etc., and then applied text, page formatting and added in some photos. He sent off the result for publishing at Lulu. You can buy your own copy at Lulu, just click on the button below.
