A true story with the heart, humor, and humility of a raw young doctor in his very first practice in a little town in the Smoky Mountains Walt Larimore was a young "flatlander" physician with a wife and two-year-old daughter when he set up his first practice in the little mountain hamlet of Bryson City, North Carolina. Schooled in the latest medical technology, the eager doctor discovered there were some things in rural practice for which medical school and residency just hadn't prepared him. He discovered his patients were often his best teachers, and his classroom ranged from hospital corridors and smelly barns to homey kitchens and mountain streams. With the winsomeness of a James Herriott book, Bryson City Tales sweeps readers into a world of colorful characters, the texture of Smoky Mountain life, and the warmth, humor, quirks, and struggles of a small country town. It's a world where the family doctor is also the emergency physician, the coroner, and the obstetrician, and where wilderness medicine is part of the job, search-and-rescue calls in the national forest are a way of life, and the next patient just may be somebody's livestock or pet. Bryson City is the place where the practice of medicine forever shaped Dr. Larimore's practice of life and faith. This paperback edition includes the first chapter of the coming sequel to Bryson City Tales.
