Medicine Men: Extreme Appalachian Doctoring by Carolyn Jourdan

Medicine Men is an extraordinary collection of the most memorable moments from old-school rural physicians who each practiced medicine for more than 50 years in the Southern Appalachian Mountains.

It contains hilarious, heroic, and heartwarming true stories of miracle cures, ghost dogs, and much madcap medical mayhem.

Jourdan's work is often compared to James Herriot and Bill Bryson. Her books are on hundreds of lists of best books of the year, best book club books, and funniest books ever.
