Carrington MacDuffie offers a warm, engaging narration of this work. To become a successful doctor, Susan La Flesche had to overcome multiple prejudices. She was an American Indian (Omaha), a woman, and, ultimately, a working mother. But she persevered and became the nation's first medical-school-trained Native American physician in the late nineteenth century. For decades she served the people of her childhood reservation. MacDuffie carries the story along, even through some historical side trips that add context but slow the narrative arc. La Flesche was a prolific letter writer, and excerpts of those missives make her story more personal. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2017]
