Curing Tuberculosis in Muskoka


Curing Tuberculosis in Muskoka: Canada’s First Sanatoria

This is the story of Canada’s first tuberculosis sanatorium, built at the turn of the 20th century in Gravenhurst, Ontario. At the heart of the book are the real-life experiences of patients and hospital staff who fought tuberculosis every day there — and in four other sanatoria located in the town, including one catering to the wealthy.
