Your Nickel's Worth Publishing is pleased to present Bold Experiment, an autobiography written by Matthew S. Anderson (1882 - 1974) - a man recognized by Tommy Douglas as 'a pioneer of social medicine'.

The 80-page book, including photographs, documents and memorabilia, uncovers the little-known history behind an important piece of our Canadian culture, heritage and identity: the story behind how Medicare first came to Saskatchewan.

Since its inception as a province, Saskatchewan has been home to grassroots idealism, to people willing to work hard to make a difference and to those willing to persevere despite the odds. Matthew Anderson believed strongly that Canadians should have protection against the cost of illness. After almost 20 years of dedication and determination to transform the idea into reality, this man, a plain 'dirt farmer' from Bulyea, Saskatchewan, forged and made work North America's first comprehensive, prepaid medical care plan.

Given the interest in the Tommy Douglas story and the history of Medicare, this book provides a timely perspective from one of the early pioneers of health care in North America.
