by David J. Peek. Softbound, 352 pages, 6" x 9". This work combines the remarkable adventures of Lewis & Clark with an examination of the health problems their expedition faced. The author patiently, expertly and humorously guides you through medical travails of the famous journey to the Pacific, juxtaposing treatment then against remedy now. The result is a facinating book that sheds new light not only on adventurers themselves, but also on the practice of medicine in their time and place.
