Abilene by S.K. Epperson

In 1870 Abilene was a destination for cowboys, cattlemen, prostitutes and a family of doctors attempting to practice an unorthodox type of medicine learned in Europe, a technique that involved manipulation of the spine to affect cures and ease minor ailments. Acceptance for their ways has been hard to find, and it's made more difficult by the fact that the Corbett family is Irish and have known their fair share of prejudice so do not share the same attitudes about Indians as those in the west live by. Young Maura Corbett is fascinated by the angry, wounded Tasunka Sapa, (Black Horse) brought in by his worried older father to have two bullets removed. Eden Corbett is equally fascinated by a beautiful woman in a wheelchair he meets inside a store then learns she is housed inside a brothel. His offer to treat her is rescinded once he learns her address, but his father and sister force him to reconsider, and soon all their lives are changed by the dangerous people and harsh life in the burgeoning town on the Kansas prairie.
