Summary
"Here in a book of enchanting intimacy and homely humor is the story of an American country doctor--of countless country doctors all over America. A colorful figure in the medical world today, head of the Hertzler Clinic at Halstead, Kans., "Pop" Hertzler began his career forty years ago under conditions of pioneer hardship--when it was a case of "root hog or die" for children and adults alike. With the most primitive of equipment (including a Colt "peace-maker" for warding off wild dogs) and with no hospital facilities (many a farm kitchen was a surgical arena in those days), he directed himself to the adventurous business of bringing human souls into the world and preserving them thereafter from premature death. It was a job for a man and a philosopher, and Dr. Hertzler is both. This chronicle of his experiences, so typical and yet so very personal by reason of the personality which pervades it, is the honest stuff of American life--wonderfully illuminating and genuinely exciting." -from dust jacket
