Descriptions The Incredible Journey of Doctor Meg Laurel
A female doctor returns from the city to her home in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Appalachia in the 1930s, intending to bring modern medical care to the area’s impoverished and ill-educated residents. However, she finds herself going against the local “medicine woman,” who believes that her simple, backwoods remedies and methods are sufficient and distrusts the new doctor’s “big-city” ways.
