Title

Medicine in Territorial Arizona

Description

In the early days, the Spanish surgeon was absent, his place taken by the missionary; but, of course, Native American healers were very much present. Illnesses, injuries, and remedies are described through the Spanish and Mexican periods, followed by the U.S. military, mule trains, miners, and the railroad. Quebbeman has thoroughly researched her subject, with nearly every assertion supported by a footnoted reference. Stories of doctors, hospitals, and patients form a gripping chronological narrative against the backdrop of diseases, injuries, and healing.
