Scalpels and Buggywhips tells the incredible story of the medical pioneers of Central BC. These medical giants treated everything from scurvy to bear bites. They delivered babies and performed surgeries. Their endurance and courage was surpassed only by that of their wives. Eldon Lee tells of Horace Cooper Wrinch, the missionary doctor of Hazelton; Quesnel's Dr. G.R. Paddy Baker and his popular wife Nellie; and the pioneer doctors of Prince George, Dr. Carl Ewert and Dr. Edwin James Lyon.
