Program Description:

Carrie Ayvar will act and play the role of Doc Anna Darrow, who was a real frontier Doc in Florida. Doc Anna was a medical doctor living in the north, who elected to move south with her husband and practice medicine on the wild frontiers around Lake Okeechobee. Doc Anna was also an artist. One famous picture she painted depicts her walking from her model t ford to a single room Florida Cracker home, while a hen fiercely wards off a rattlesnake that lies in Doc Anna’s path.
