Country Doctor's Chronicle by Roger A. McDonald
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In this new collection of stories, MacDonald takes readers on another round of house calls, office visits, and emergency summons. His remote practice saw patients of every age and type, from a local child with a penchant for putting things up his nose to a dedicated church pianist with untreatable cancer, from a teenager with unexplained seizures to a vacationing Mafioso recovering from a heart attack. MacDonald offers tales of patients, colleagues, and neighbours, probing their very human responses to medical dilemmas and sharing humorous and touching episodes in equal portions. A charming collection of vignettes -- some hopeful, some heartbreaking -- that offer a unique look at a bygone era of twentieth-century rural America.
