Publisher's Summary

Walt Larimore was a young "flatlander" physician with a wife and three-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 that there were some things in rural practice for which medical school just hadn't prepared him. He found his patients were often his best teachers, and his classroom ranged from hospital corridors and smelly barns to homey kitchens and mountain streams. In Best of Bryson City, Dr. Larimore reads selections from his two collections of stories about the place that forever shaped not only his medical practice, but also his practice of life and faith. He sweeps readers into a world of colorful characters and the warmth, humor, quirks, and struggles of a small country town.

A piece of the NC mountains

Anyone who thinks this story sounds like fiction has never spent years in the mountains of NC. Such a slice of life! I enjoyed the stories from the midwives to the fishermen; from the realities of hospital politics to the pain of having a disabled child.

The small-town stories are almost too familiar! As a tubing enthusiast who loves Deep Creek it sounds like home!

The story is heavy on faith, just as life in NC *is* - yes, doctors here STILL offer to pray with you. Not politically correct in some parts of the country, as many expect certain professionals to exist separate from their faith. I have to tell you Dr Larimore is never condeming of those of another faith, simply expressing the joy he has found in his own - that is refreshing! A REALISTIC and joyful slice of life.

I have already searched to see if his complete collection is on Audible and will download it whenever it becomes available.
