In The Dreamer and the Doctor, Jack Nisbet turns his attention to American pioneers Dr. Carrie and John Leiberg, whose lives and passions helped shape our region in the turn of the twentieth century. Their adventures spilled out of the Northwest to touch issues of public health, government control, and personal freedom; what they accomplished emerged as touchstones of character and identity for an entire region.

Jack Nisbet is the author of several collections of essays that explore the human and natural history of the Northwest, including Purple Flat Top, Visible Bones, and Ancient Places. He has also written award-winning biographies of fur agent and cartographer David Thompson (Sources of the River) and naturalist David Douglas (The Collector).
