Format:                       Softcover       144 pages

Drawing on an extensive collection of previously unseen photographs, letters and diaries, this book examines the management and care of pandemic influenza at Oodnadatta from May to July 1919.  Intercultural aspects of the management and care of European, Afghan, Chinese and Aboriginal patients are examined in the context of the health and lifestyle of local residents, nursing practices, medicines, foods, accommodation and the contribution of individuals, groups and their roles.  This intimate history sheds light on a relatively unknown, yet important group of people in Australia's frontier history:  the missioners and others who cared for seriously ill Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal patients at Oodnadatta, providing culturally sensitive care that afforded respect, dignity and compassion to all.
