Overview

The middle of five daughters, Nell recalls growing up in Arkansas and Oklahoma at the beginning of the 20th century, where her father was a country doctor who made house calls from the back of a horse and--more often than not--was paid in chickens rather than cash. The book provides an eye-witness account of the life of a rural doctor between 1909-1934. Most of the book is set in and around Elizabeth, Arkansas (1909-1917). Dr. Sutton next went to Keokuk Falls, Oklahoma in 1917. He then moved his family to Milfay, Oklahoma, where he set up his final practice. Anyone researching the Oklahoma and Arkansas regions during the early part of the 20th century should find a treasure trove of small details ranging from daily life to the cost of pulling a tooth to delivering a baby.
