|Availability:||On Order 1 copy|
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.
