Pioneer Doctor(The Story of a Woman's Work) by Mari Grana

This book is based on a real woman doctor and was written by her granddaughter. You wouldn't call this a biography because the author had to make somethings up to build up the story but all the facts and a lot of the info about Mollie are from her own knowledge of her grandmother or historical info. Mollie Atwater is one of the first women doctors in Montana, and also one women who in the 1800's got a divorce from her husband. Mollie is also a suffergate for womens rights and TB. You go through her life and her Doctoring the people of Montana. I really liked this book and I felt like I was there with Mollie throughout her life.
