Is there a doctor in the house?
There will be tonight when I'm reading Montana History at the Marias Heritage Center here in Shelby. I'm looking forward to beginning a new book this evening that deals with the women physicians of the old west. The name of our new book is "The Doctor Wore Petticoats" and the author, Chris Enss, is an award-winning screen writer who has written for television, short subject films, live performances, and for the movies. She's also written "Hearts West: True Stories of Mail-Order Bridges on the Frontier", "How the West Was Worn: Bustles and Buckskins on the Wild Frontier, and "Buffalo Gals: Women of Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show". I'll tell you more about the book next week on my Puffman Blog. Our first chapter this evening is entitled "Bethenia Owens-Adair: Northwest Physician" and it looks like a page turner. Looking forward to seeing you this evening for Montana History at six in the sun room in the beautiful Marias Heritage Center in Shelby. It's always makes my Tuesday night!
