In Search of History: Frontier Doctors
The History Channel's "In Search of History" series takes a compelling look at medical care in the rough-and-tumble world of the American West. On the frontier, many "doctors" were mere quacks hawking folk remedies and dubious patent medicines, but others were medically trained innovators who boldly experimented with new techniques born of necessity. This is a fascinating look at a remarkable chapter in medical history.
