A great deal about Baker can be understood by the impact that he had on his friends.

Included in this section are accounts from an army colleague's perspective, who served with Baker in China during the war. He talks about Baker's untiring efforts and how overturned traditional fear and anger and helped locals understand that the lepers of Salachi, China were not to be shunned and to be treated with respect as any other human being.


Also included is a recollection by the Murrays of the life in the Himalayas, Baker's resourcefulness and enterprising nature, carving out a hospital and a house literally on the peak of one of the highest mountains in India.
