The Frontier Healers(1981)
(Book 16 in the Making of America series)
A novel by Lee Davis Willoughby (William L DeAndrea, Richard Deming and Richard Laymon)
"In the chaos that followed the Civil War, a turbulent tide of men and women surged across the Mississippi to escape the unspeakable horrors of a broken and humiliated South. Some chose to cast their lot in the sprawling raucus mining town of Virginia City. Among them was the beautiful half-breed, Yvonne Beaunais and her daughter Tangaree. Yvonne's burning ambition was to provide her daughter with the education that would open up the tantalizing new world of medicine that had been denied her. Together they administered their healing herbal remedies to the sick and dying. Together they defied the threats of Matthew Lassiter, who ran Virginia City like a fiefdom. And together they fought against heavy odds to improve the quality of living in a brutal frontier town - and sought their own private fulfillment in love and life."
