To say I read a lot is an understatement. Books have been a part of my life since I was very young. I was the kid that read under my bed, under the covers, in the closet, bathtub, prairie, meadow, barn, banks of the streams, and anywhere I could lose myself in the pages.
I just read a delightful book by Dr. Gary Yarbrough, House Calls: Stories from Thirty Years of Rural Medicine Among the Amish and English. You can pick up a copy on Amazon, just click on the above picture and it will take you shopping.
I only wished I had the pleasure to meet Dr. Yarbrough. The good doctor brings to us on his pages, his extraordinary adventures in medicine. "House Calls" is different, interesting, and dug into the unusual. It was about people. To say it dove into simple, good living and brought me back to what is American just doesn't do this book justice. However, I don't want to get into a lot of details, because I think you need to discover it for yourself.
It made me smile, and experience the same feelings Dr. Yarbrough wrote about introducing us to his characters. There were some sad notes, but he didn't dwell on it. I might have had a puzzled look on my face at times trying to place myself in the doctor's shoes.
"House Calls" is well written, intriguing, and is a "behind the stethoscope" look at a practice that no longer exists in most of America. Thank you, Dr. Yarbrough for sharing this incredible and fun read! It's for everyone. Pick it up on Amazon and enjoy something unique!
