Description: Susan La Flesche Picotte, born in a tipi on the plains in 1865, became the first American Indian woman doctor. This interpretive biography focuses on Picotte's role as cultural mediator as she moved between two seemingly irreconcilable environments -- the western world of the Omaha Indians and the eastern world of college, medical training, and politics.

Susan La Flesche Picotte, M.D., provides an intimate portrait of an Omaha woman, born in a time of tumultuous change, who achieved some measure of success as a teacher, doctor, and crusader for temperance and Indian-policy reform. The book-also tells of a woman who struggled to balance a demanding career with a life of devotion to her family and community. This inspiring biography will be valued by readers of American Indian history, women's studies, the history of medicine, and the history of the American West.
