Synopsis
Ages 9 to 13 years. Women have been doctors for a very long time. From a great variety of ethnic and cultural backgrounds, women have overcome great odds to heal and help their communities. This book of ten biographies looks at the amazing women -- both living and in the past -- whose lives and accomplishments make for exciting reading. Besides three of Canada's own, including Emily Stowe and African AIDS doctor Louise Teasdale, the book includes accessible stories about an early Native woman doctor, Susan LaFleche Picotte; Maria Montessori, who later became the founder of a world-wide movement in education; Haitian born physician Carolle-Jean Murat who overcame devastating poverty and prejudice to become a world-renowned physician and educator practicing today. Humorously written biographies also include Joy Seager the Kangaroo Island doctor of Australia. An introduction, photographs, illustrative and boxed material make this book both fun reading and a useful resource.
