Description
 
David J. Peck (au); R. E. “Bob” Morgan (il); Moira Ambrose (fr). Using the best medical knowledge of 1803, Captains Meriwether Lewis & William Clark were the physicians for the Lewis & Clark Expedition. With no knowledge of bacteria, viruses, parasites, antisepsis, & even how many of the internal organs functioned, they “doctered” themselves, their men, Sacagawea, her baby, & native peoples they visited. They treated snakebites, STDs, dysentery, frostbite, dislocated joints, gunshot, ax gashes, mental illness, & more. Describes what they did, why they did it, what was almost always wrong with it, & what doctors now would do. Dr. Peck follows Lewis through his weeks of medical training in Philadelphia, & then the entire Corps of Discovery to the Pacific & back, covering 1803 to 1806. Illustrations.
