A pharmacist by trade and author by design, Wayne Bethard is the truest of drugstore cowboys. For three years he served as contributing editor forThe Texas Outdoors Journal and authored his own monthly section titled “At Full Draw.” He lives in Longview, Texas.
Examines the most popular medicines from America's frontier days, noting the dates they were in use, dosage forms, and the idiosyncrasies of such remedies as chalk, kudzu, olive oil, figs, and sulfur.
