The Dreamer and the Doctor

by author Jack Nisbet

John Leiberg was a prospector and plant lover who came to the Inland Northwest with the Northern 
Pacific Railroad in 1884. His wife Carrie worked as a family physician and raised a difficult child 
while they carved out a homestead on the shores of Lake Pend Oreille. 

Their saga, loaded with unlikely turns, reflects an American West on the ragged edge between frontier and modern times. 

On November 1 Jack will do a reading from his new book at: 

Aunties Bookstore 
downtown Spokane 
7:00 pm
