Goodread Biographies, 1984 - Biography & Autobiography - 238 pages
Meet a dozen fascinating women, pioneers in the medical world, adventurers who went west with the homesteaders, missionaries who went to Tibet, China and India, scholars the academic community had to recognise. The medical establishment in Canada didn't accept these women doctors easily, and their battles for admittance into this profession are revealing.
