Big Medicine from Six Nations is a series of reminiscences and essays by the late Ted Williams, on the themes of "Medicine" (physical/spiritual/psychic healing). Williams intertwines the lore and lifeways of his Tuscarora upbringing, illustrating the dynamic encounter of tradition and innovation at the heart of contemporary Haudenosaunee culture. At the same time, Williams writes with an irreverence, irony, and good humor unmistakably his own. Colored by Ted's wry and irreverent wit, Big Medicine from Six Nations amply fulfills the promise of its title. It offers a fascinating view, not only of herbal medicine, but of prayers, omens, feasts, vision quests, sweat lodges, spirits, humor, and the sacred teachings of the Great Law of the Great Peace. But readers will find that there is more to this book, about the "spiritual mechanics" of humankind writ large. Readers will discover herein a multiplicity of Big Medicine manifestations, and best of all they will get to know more about Ted Williams, Teller.

Big Medicine is an intellectually rich and engaging historical epic detailing the early development of the West from 1850 to 1893. This enthralling historical novel is set on the present day Flathead Indian Reservation in Western Montana's magnificent Mission Valley. This is the story of trappers, traders, tribes, cattle barons, copper kings and timber czars and the political, military and personal struggles that eventually settled the fabled land, Montana. They came from far and wide, into a wild and untamed wilderness, risking all they had in hope of finding a better life, each of them hoping to fulfill their own personal vision. Some did, most did not, but all of their stories dress the captivating pages of Big Medicine.

Owen wakes up in the Montana Territory tied to a wooden pole in the middle of a Blackfoot Indian village. He doesn’t remember his name, where he came from, or anything about his past. The Blackfoot Indians believe a book that was lying beside Owen when he was captured has spiritual powers and helped him survive an attack when all the others in his large wagon train were killed. When Owen is restored to health, a Blackfoot chief named Askuwheteau forces him to play a game called the chase game to see if the book he carried with him has spiritual powers. If Owen survives this game, which no captive or warrior has before, it will prove the book they call Big Medicine has spiritual powers and his life will be spared. If he loses the game he will die and they will destroy the book. Can Owen outlast the twelve-armed Blackfoot warriors chosen to chase him with just the arrow he pulled out of the ground to start the chase game? At the same time, a white woman held captive by Chief Askuwheteau since her childhood had prayed to God every day to send someone to rescue her and take her back to her own people. Just when she thought her prayers had been answered, a Blackfoot warrior named Megedagik traded ten Appaloosas for her and took her away to be his squaw. Had God forgotten her or had he always planned on her living among the Blackfoot Indians? In another part of the Montana Territory, hostile Indians besiege Fort Pennington. Supplies and ammunition are running low while the defenders inside the fort fight two Indian tribes for their lives. Can a dispatch rider named Corporal Kessler, a scruffy old mountain man named Hobbs, and a book the Blackfoot call Big Medicine save the lives of the soldiers and settlers defending Fort Pennington, or will they all be killed by the hostile Indians besieging the fort?

Every year, more than a million men undergo painful needle biopsies for prostate cancer, and upward of 100,000 have radical prostatectomies, resulting in incontinence and impotence. But the shocking fact is that most of these men would never have died from this common form of cancer, which frequently grows so slowly that it never even leaves the prostate. How did we get to a point where so many unnecessary tests and surgeries are being done? In The Great Prostate Hoax, Richard J. Ablin exposes how a discovery he made in 1970, the prostate-specific antigen (PSA), was co-opted by the pharmaceutical industry into a multibillion-dollar business. He shows how his discovery of PSA was never meant to be used for screening prostate cancer, and yet nonetheless the test was patented and eventurally approved by the FDA in 1994. Now, doctors and victims are beginning to speak out about the harm of the test, and beginning to search for a true prostate cancer-specific marker.
