Medicine in Old Silver Reef - A Tale of Four Cultures
The many ethnic backgrounds and belief systems of the residents of Old Silver Reef resulted in a range of medical practices. The goal was the same, healing the sick and injured, but the ways of achieving this differed for the Southern Paiutes, Mormon pioneers, Euro-American miners / merchants, and Chinese. Join Dr. Judy Henck in an exploration of these different medical cultures, including stories of the medical methods and beliefs, the healers, and the diseases...
