|Author||Stephenson, Peter H. ed.|

|Summary||"A description of the health issues faced by First Nations people living in British Columbia, written by 29 contributors in response to the lack of organized information needed by policy makers in the area. The study explores the historical ramifications of European diseases on the aboriginal population, traditional health practices, and incidence of chronic diseases and related lifestyle issues. Additionally, the authors provide information about therapy practices, and community health organizations which seek to establish vehicles of healing and awareness within the population." taken from the Chapters Indigo website, May 31, 2010.|
