In a land of stunning beauty and amazing isolation, Liebler worked ceaselessly to improve health and educational standards until his death in 1982. Covering the years 1942-62, Boil My Heart for Me is a description of one persons life in the remote Utah strip at mid-century.

Lieblers humorous, self-effacing account describes the establishment of St. Christophers, day-to-day encounters with local Navajos and Anglos, and his efforts in the face of endless adversity to mediate the enormous gap between two cultures. In his spiritual work, Liebler combined Christian and Native American approaches, walking a fine line between Anglo and traditional Navajo values. The story of H. Baxter Liebler is an essential piece in the mosaic of Four Corners history.
