Descripción

-----The scan you see is the book you get. Large soft cover (roughly) 9" by 6" (inches), square clean & tight, flat uncreased spine, 215 pages with b & w photos through-out, SIGNED (without inscription) by Mary Percy Jackson on title page, Very Good Plus condition with back cover corner crease. "She was given a remote log shack in the middle of the 400-square-mile area she was to serve. The property was dirty when she arrived, there were no shelves, & the only place for a patient to lie down was her own bed. She was from a family which had a maid, so she was not used to cooking, nor to such harsh circumstances as she found in Canada on her arrival. She had grown up during the First World War, when food was in short supply, with not enough available for girls to have cookery lessons with at school. Cooking at her new home was not easy & happened on a wood burning stove that needed almost continual stoking to prevent the flames from going out; for quite a time, she relied heavily on her Primus stove. She bought a rifle in 1929 so she could hunt prairie chickens & even moose to supplement her diet. The newly arrived doctor began her practice immediately. She traveled by horseback & occasionally by dogsled or cutter. Pneumonia was common in the area, but much of her work was from accidents including gunshot wounds, falls & axe wounds. There were also many childbirths, though the births that Mary attended were often "the kind that would turn you grey" ---." (Wikipedia) Check out the scans. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
