One of Canada's first woman doctors, she was a determined, truly remarkable person, whose character and achievements, from her early days in Ontario and India to her death in 1958, are recounted by her daughter, author Ruth Matheson Buck. Here are her struggles as a woman and a mother of nine, her fight against discrimination in the medical profession, her tireless efforts to gain the trust of the Cree Indians at the Onion Lake Mission in Northern Saskatchewan, built up over the years, and her exhausting, life-saving journeys to the bleak outposts of her practice.
