In 1990, Dr. Linnea Smith went to Peru on an ecotourism vacation. She was so moved that she abandoned her thriving medical practice in Wisconsin to serve the Yagua Indians in the deepest part of the Amazon rainforest of Peru-alone.Taken straight from the pages of Dr. Smith\u2019s journal, La Doctora offers readers a rare glimpse into the suspense and drama of practicing medicine in a culture far removed from the sophisticated supplies and supports of 20th-century medicine.Learn how Dr. Smith evolved from a \u201cstrange white woman\u201d to an adopted member of the indigenous community. Her story of adventure, self-discovery and service creates inspiring testimony to one person\u2019s power to make a lasting difference.
