Storyline

Dr. Mike befriends a young Chinese woman who is posing as a man so that she can practice medicine in the tradition-bound Chinese community. Dr. Mike finds herself matching her medical skills against those of an elderly Cantonese herbalist when many members of a large group of Chinese passing through Colorado Springs looking for work fall victim to fever. She becomes attached to the herbalist's young assistant, whom he introduces as his grandson but who actually turns out to be his granddaughter. Both of them, and the rest of the Chinese community, are endangered by the actions of Hank, who tries to drive them from town because he fears they will cause an epidemic.

A balance...and a Chinese woman doctor...
12 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

Again we see D.Quinn standing up for her beliefs and ideals, as a group of Chinese settles in the town. It's not my favorite episode,but it is a good one, though. Hank doesn't want them around, anymore than some people in the town do. He tries to set the Chinese camp on fire, but Daniel puts a stop to it before it's too late. At the same time, Dr.Quinn meets Jean Yang and her grandfather, who is also a doctor. They have a few cases of malaria in camp, and Dr.Quinn helps them out. We also see some Cantonese traditions and we learn more about their culture. We see them celabrating new year, the tradition of binding women's feet to make them beautiful, and their restrictions. I found these quite shocking...they don't show them, of course, but talking about them is enough to make anyone susceptible...Highly impressive, I'd say. In the end we see Jean Yang's true identity, as she reveals herself...Watch to find out! Hank really does set a fire on the camp, and he goes to Denver to stand trial. What I missed in this episode was Dorothy...I have a faint idea she would fit in the plot rather well. ENJOY THESE SERIES!
