A Frontier Doctor Page: vii


IF you decide to go any further than this preface, you
will soon perceive that my cards are all on the table face
up. In my recital of experiences and adventures of my
pioneering days, I have stuck to the truth. I have tried
to demonstrate that a young man can travel along the
different highways - and by-ways - of life surrounded
by all kinds of temptations, yet, if he has will power, a
sense of right and wrong, and does not forget the early
teaching of his parents, he will, in the vast majority of
cases, come out all right.
In preparing this work I have received, from friends
and well-wishers, different suggestions and advice as to
just how it should be featured, in this day and gineration,
in order to please and satisfy the public. A number ad-
vise, that unless it be well freckled with divorces, scan-
dals, and sex complexes - something that will fairly
scorch the covers - I am simply throwing away my time.
I am still a little old-fashioned, so most of those topics
will be conspicuous by their absence.
There are others, however, to whom I shall be ever
grateful for their kind and timely advice, encouragement,
and help. I feel under especial obligations, and herewith
express my sincere thanks, to Leva Margaret Handy,
Walter Noble Burns, Maurice G. Fulton, William S.
Hart, J. Evetts Haley, the late Charles A. Siringo, E. A.
Brininstool, William J. Chisum, Dr. and Mrs. James W.
Yard, and Colonel George A. Skinner, Medical Corps,
June, 1929
