Oh, how I loved this book! My family has had a cabin in the same area where Dr. Kate lived and worked and I have been hearing about her my entire life. We've never visited the museum even though we've driven by it thousands of times so I didn't really know much about her except that she was a pioneering country doctor. Love the local Northwoods Wisconsin history, love the women's history!!
