Publisher's Summary

A collection of the most memorable moments from old-school rural physicians who each practiced medicine for more than 50 years in the Southern Appalachian Mountains. Hilarious, heroic, heartwarming true stories of miracle cures, ghost dogs, and much madcap medical mayhem. Jourdan's work is often compared to James Herriot and Bill Bryson. Her first book is on hundreds of lists of best books of the year, best book club books, and funniest books.

    Story
    "Mediocre for Me"

    This was not as humorous as I expected. I actually liked the one liners better than most of the stories. I'm not sure why I didn't connect with this book; maybe there were too many stories with minimal detail about the people involved. The male narrator threw me when it was supposed to be in the female author's voice.
