'Gut Buch' Read

A gift from dear friend Carol, from the Homestead Herbalism Grad Class...this vintage book "Dr Frau" is such a good read!!! It's a first hand account of a woman doctor/midwife in the sixties in nearby New Holland, PA, just up the road from here. Her descriptions of Amish farm life and home birthing balanced with her own juggling of career and family in the early sixties is a cultural eyeopener on many fronts. I am enjoying this book so much I don't want it to end. It is 'bath-bed-book' perfection! Thanks so much Carol. Mom, you have to read this!
