The Doctor Wore Petticoats is a fascinating glimpse into the heretofore unseen world of female physicians in horse and buggy days. Despite an urgent need for trained doctors in the Old West, women were told that they need not apply. Flora Hayward Stanford actually worked on such legendary folk heroes as Buffalo Bill Cody and Calamity Jane. Susan La Flesche was the first Native American woman to become a licensed physician - so women today have no excuses for not fulfilling their potential.

Anyone who believes in the equality of the sexes will love this book. Chris Enss has given us an inspirational journey through time.

Originally published on Curled Up With A Good Book at Camden Alexander, 2006
