from Amazon review:

"Country Doctor and the Epidemics - Montana 1917 - 1918" is set in Forsyth, Montana (a frontier town in Rosebud County) during WWI. This book is a fictional novella - the story is consitent with events that happened during that time period in Montana. The US was engaged in WWI, patriotism was high, as well as paranoia and claims of sedtion. In the midst of the country being engaged in the great war, the spanish influenza epidemic swept the country and the world. We see this town through the eyes of Dr. Harvey, a physician who moves from Chicago to Forsyth after the death of his wife and baby to replace the local physician who left due to the war. This book is engaging in how it wraps the early history of Montana, the great war, and a world wide public health disaster together. I would highly recommend it.”
