Frontier Doctors (2006) - For the vulnerable European settlers making their way west on the uncertain plains of the American frontier, the threat of death lurked around every twist of the trail.
In the late-eighteenth and early-nineteenth centuries, America's western lands were a place of both isolation and primitive conditions. At each step in the march westward, new settlers fought cunning and ubiquitous enemies in the form of deadly diseases and rampant epidemics. Where battle wounds, poor sanitation, and deadly animals were common, appropriate medical care was not. To survive in these harrowing conditions, the settlers had to find a doctor - or someone calling him or herself one.
In this captivating program, The History Channel® journeys deep into the American frontier to discover the stories behind the pioneering men and women whose courage and heroism both helped to save lives and make medical history.
