Description
 
David J. Peck (au); Moira Ambrose (fr); R.F. “Bob” Morgan (il). This book provides a distinctly unique literary approach to the account of the Expedition of Lewis & Clark. Dr. David Peck -- an avowed devotee of Lewis & Clark -- takes a new look at the myriad dangers faced by the explorers on a daily basis on their trek into the Western wilderness. What he finds is altogether revealing, instructive, & entertaining. Dr. Peck guides us through the medical travails of the famous journey, juxtaposing treatment then against remedy now. The result is a fascinating book which sheds new light on not only Lewis & Clark & the men they led along an 8,000-mile wilderness path, but the practice of medicine in the world they lived in. Illustrations.
