Description:
 Meet the author of Magic and Tragic Rosebud, a memoir recounting Nancy's experiences as a nurse on the Rosebud reservation in 1973. Come with this young woman from Connecticut who accepts her first nursing job with the U.S. Public Health Service and finds herself immersed in a culture very different from her own. Hear the drums and flutes, and learn with her of the rich Lakota Sioux traditions. Relive those days of civil unrest punctuated by kidnapping, death threats, and FBI shootouts. Meet the characters who jump out a hospital window, drive cars without motors, and jiggle the plug to power the hospital. Celebrate lasting friendships and the resilience of the human spirit.
