Well-Crafted 'Long Journey'

Department: Letters

Kudos to Linda Wang for her poignant article "Long Journey" on reaching tribal students in Montana with chemistry (C&EN, June 29, page 10). And hats off to its protagonist, Robin Jose, assistant professor at Rocky Mountain College. The story of a poor boy from southwestern India growing up to share his hard-won knowledge of chemistry with Native American students is inspirational.

This well-crafted article is a testament to the power of chemistry in the service of the human spirit. It should be required reading for chemistry students.
