The Indians And The Nurse.


The author returned from nursing in France at the end of World War I and spent some time with the American Red Cross speaking around the United States about her experiences. Eventually, she agreed to become a public health nurse in South Dakota on the Rosebud and Pine Ridge reservations. She discusses her years working on the frontier as a public health nurse, her field trips to visit the pueblos of New Mexico, the Navajo, the the Native Americans of the northwest and northern plains, Alaska Natives, and her time working for the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Indian Service.
