GRINGO DOCTOR

Heading for Texas because of ill health, Dr. Bush first practiced in Fort Davis, learned to love the life, people and finally settled in El Paso, where he often crossed the border and traveled in Mexico, and was in the thick of the Madero-Orozco revolution against Diaz. He gives an interesting picture of the fighting around Juarez, his medical work, smuggling a cannon across the Rio Grande, and portraits, from personal experience, of the leaders, including Pancho Villa. He has his say on the U. S. attitude towards Mexico, and presents his personal interpretations of Mexican archaeology, Indian history, and gives stories of hunting trips, kidnappings, and experiences not without danger to himself. A somewhat different angle on the usual medical material.
