Or Perish in the Attempt: Wilderness Medicine in the Lewis & Clark Expedition.
by [Lewis & Clark Expedition] Peck, D.O., David J.

Publisher Information:
Farcountry Press, Helena: 2002.

A Fine tight copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. This copy is Inscribed by the author. Dr. Peck, writing for the layperson, describes what the two captains did medically, why they did it, what was almost always wrong with it and what doctors today would do. Both Lewis and Clark acted as "doctors" on their expedition treating snakebites, STDs, dystentery, frostbite, dislocated bones, gunshot, ax gashes and mental illness with absolutely no formal knowledge of bacteria, viruses, parasites, or antiseptics. While Peck summarizes the entire trek, he focuses on its medical aspects providing a unique perspective on the challenges and accomplishments of this great adventure.
