In Dr. Luke Carr's journal entries, early American medical practices--including herbal remedies and homeopathy--are revealed amid the backdrop of Rhode Island's scenic Pawtuxet Village. The exploratory philosophies that have since led to modern-day medical practice evolve alongside a historical view into life of America's early European settlers, including the common social and political issues of the time; the effects of the American Revolution; the influence of the Masons, the church, and various religions; and much more.
