Signed by Author
BRAND NEW - SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR Quoting from the preface [of the first book] by Shirley Stinson of the Univeristy of Alberta: ..."many professionals have delivered pivotally important health servies to people in remote areas of Canada... very few nurses or others have written stories about their experiences and about the conditions in which they worked. Fewer still have had their stories published in book form. Thus (this book) is a rarity - it constitutes an important contribution to the history of health care in Canada and is a tribute... to the people who serve in the North... an unparalleled reference for nurse historians and other historical researchers who need to find "real life" documented examples... 232 pages.
