Women have been doctors for a very long time. From a variety of ethnic and cultural backgrounds, they have surmounted great odds to heal and help their communities. This book of ten biographies features women from around the world, past and present. Besides three of Canada's own, including Emily Stowe and AIDS doctor Lucille Teasdale, the book includes accessible stories about an early Native woman doctor, Susan LaFlesche Picotte; Maria Montessori, who later became the founder of a world-wide movement in education; Haitian-born Carolle Jean-Murat, who has overcome devastating poverty and prejudice to become a world-renowned physician and educator; and Joy Seager, the "Kangaroo Island doctor" of Australia. An introduction, photographs, and illustrative and boxed material make this book both fun reading and a useful resourse.
