Summary Arctic Doctor is an account of the true adventures of Joe Moody, the heroic young medical doctor whose practice covered 600,000 square miles of Canadas East Arctic. Headquartered at Chesterfield Inlet on the west coast of Hudson Bay, Joe Moody made routine calls to his 2,000 Eskimo patients that required to take perilous trips by aircraft, dog sled, and canoe; to direct complicated surgery by telephone; and to confront Eskimo practices of infanticide and the assisted suicide of the age. Dr. Moodys book is an exciting and suspenseful account of his years in the East Arcticyears of courageous effort on behalf of his profession, years devoted to scientific and human observation of the most fruitful kind, and years of heady adventure rarely matched in the annals of northland fiction.
