A YOUNG MD’S FIRST YEAR – October 2010

Bryson City Tales by Walt Larimore, M.D. is a delightful true story of a young doctor’s first year of family practice.

The small town of Bryson City lies in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. The people there are in need of young doctors to reinforce the present medical personnel, most of whom are nearing retirement.

Fresh out of Duke University Medical School, Larimore is trained in all the latest technology, but he finds that he has a lot to learn about the local people and their way of life.

He is also the coroner and the emergency physician on his shift. His patients, some of them animal, become his teachers in many ways.

As Dr. Larimore and his family settle into their new hometown, he shares his hopes, and dreams with the homespun warmth that is reminiscent of James Herriot’s stories. He reveals the character, motives, and sometimes the disappointments, of a first-year family doctor.

June (Aug.’10 ) adds, “This is a warm, good-feeling read. I loved it.”
