Medicine, Madams and Mounties
Stories of A Yukon DoctorBook - 1989
Arriving in the isolated Yukon at the start of the Depression, Dr. Allan Duncan found himself the only doctor for hundreds of miles around. As internist, orthopedic surgeon, obstetrician, dentist, and even RCMP detective, he encountered a host of fascinating characters. In severe weather, impoverished conditions, and antiquated medical facilities, Dr. Duncan tended the sick, delivered babies, and saved hundreds of lives, often risking his own in the process. Filled with powerful tales and exciting adventures, Medicine, Madams & Mounties tells the history of a place and people in the words of a true pioneer.
