Item description for Galen and the Gateway to Medicine (Living History Library) by Jeanne Bendick...

Looks at the life and times of the ancient Roman doctor, Galen, and his theories on human physiology.

Publishers Description
We know about Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine. But we owe nearly as much to Galen, a physician born in 129 A.D. at the height of the Roman Empire. Galen's acute diagnoses of patients, botanical wisdom, and studies of physiology were recorded in numerous books, handed down through the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Not least, Galen passed on the medical tradition of respect for life. In this fascinating biography for young people, Jeanne Bendick brings Galen's Roman world to life with the clarity, humor, and outstanding content we enjoyed in Archimedes and the Door to Science. An excellent addition to the home, school and to libraries.

Reviews - What do customers think about Galen and the Gateway to Medicine ?

Grandson fascinated!  May 12, 2007
Our 10 year old grandson started the book and couldn't put it down. He declared early in his young life that he wants to be a scientist, so this is perfect for him.

We are great fans of all that Bethlehem Books publishes. They are very accurate in their judgement of age appropriateness.
