Alaska's Search for a Killer

A Seafaring Medical Adventure 1946-1948

by Meredith, Susan

Gair, Kitty

Schwinge, Elaine



"Few young women in the post-war 1940s got the chance or were bold enough to cruise the Alaska coast on a medical work ship. Anyone interested in adventure, history, medicine, kayaking, or Native peoples will enjoy Susan Meredith's account of her participation in the beginnings of territorial Alaska's fight against tuberculosis, then rampant in the villages."--Neil Davis, Alaskan Author
