Carlos Montezuma, M.D.: A Yavapai American Hero Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Impeccably researched and rich in detail, Carlos Montezuma, M.D. documents the life of one of the first Native American medical doctors. Taken from his family as a boy by Pima Indian warriors and sold to an itinerant Italian photographer, Montezuma found himself deposited into vastly foreign surroundings at a very young age. In late nineteenth-century Chicago, he was presented with opportunities, both educational and social, that had previously been unavailable to his people. Leon Speroff paints a full and well-rounded picture of the life and times of this remarkable man.

About the Author

Leon Speroff is Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Oregon Health & Science University. He is known worldwide for his textbook, Clinical Gynecologic Endocrinology and Infertility, which has been translated into many languages and is now in its 7th edition. Dr. Speroff grew up in Ohio, and he continues to root for the Cleveland sports teams. He lives in a rural area outside of Portland, Oregon, with his wife Sen and their two daughters, Sevda and Elena. When not writing or teaching, Dr. Speroff can be found riding his tractor or flyfishing. His most recent book, the Deschutes River Railroad War, also published by Arnica Publishing, Inc. is now in its second printing.
