Great stories of a Doctor's work and home life in a small town in the Mountains of NC. I love to visit Bryson City. Enjoyed.
Book #3 in the Bryson City series is even BETTER than the first two and I thought they were great! Thoroughly have enjoyed this series and wish there was a book 4 to continue their family journey. I don't want to give anything away, loved the chapter with the young patient towards the end of the book.
This final in a trilogy is well written, sad, interesting and inspiring. I am happy to have read all three in this series. I am touched by his stories and would love to hear him speak in person.
The last of Walt Larimore's tales of Bryson City left me wanting more! Again, I found myself laughing through some pages and crying through others. This third book is filled with emotion with patient stories as well as personal family stories. I felt that this book is raw insight into the life of this small mountain town doctor as he shares his experiences with patient cases, family issues, and community relationships. His storytelling is like a breath of fresh air as he shares his gifts of pati...
I wish I had stopped with the first two books, or stopped before reading the last few chapters of this one. Part of the appeal of these books was the basically gentle nature of small town life. Yes, there were those who didn't like the new doctors, but it seemed most of the town was open to changes, and welcoming. This one reveals a really ugly underbelly, and I just wish I hadn't read it.
I enjoyed hearing of Dr. Walt's life in NC and the medical encounters he had. As a person in medicine, I learned some things, laughed, and cried as we went through the years covered in the 3 books. Highly recommended even for non-medical people as he explains things in terms everyone can understand.
In this last book of the series Dr Larimore doesn't shy away from the more difficult and unsavory elements of human behavior and how these affected him and his family. A sad yet inevitable part of the life experiences many have to deal with in the real world of imperfect humanity.
I read this going and coming from decorating graves in Martin County KY today.This is the third in a series and it is a wonderful series. If you like the Smokey Mountains (or any mountains), love the Lord, or are interested in a medical field, you will love this series.I highly recommend it.
All these books are great, but this one is exceptional. I wish all med. students and family practitioners could read it. So full of wisdom and wit, as well as advice worth heeding. Really one of the best books I've read in quite a while. GET IT!!
No wonder Dr Larimore has received so many accolades for his caring practice of medicine! Great read! Great live lessons!
Still good, but seemed more cathartic and therapeutic for the doctor's family. Sad personal experiences shared and changed the family's lives.
I enjoyed this book almost as much as I have his two previous books. He has a very easy to read writing style and makes the stories seem real and as if you are right there with him. These books remind me of the great James Herriot Books. Although this book has a troubling story in the background throughout it, on the whole I thought it was a great book.
This was an intensely personal book, revealing the doctor's thoughts on many weighty spiritual issues as patients under his care passed away. In it, he also reveals a private and devastating incident in the Larimore's family life in hopes that others may be helped.The only thing I did not like about the book was the introduction of the concept that something devastating had happened at the beginning - it overshadowed everything else the book had to say up until the time the secret was revealed,
I didn't enjoy this entry in the Bryson City series as much as the first two. It seemed as though the author approached the book with less delight and more of an agenda, tying off through death the personal stories of characters I'd come to like and division on some level with others. The bread around this sandwich was his account of a heinous incident that became the catalyst for his family's move from Bryson City. You might say that the first two books were a sanitized, light hearted look at B...
This is the third book by Dr. Walt Larimore. He describes more tales of his time spent in the Smoky Mountains as a family practitioner. Many of the stories make you giggle as you try to imagine the situations he was put in. While the other stories make you shed a few tears and reflect on your own faith. He has many life lessons to share in this book as well as the true reason why he moved his family from the area!
This memoir covers early years in Walt Larimore's career as a physician, his young family and several of his patients. The third in a trilogy I've only read this one. The stories are enjoyable, I especially liked a very poignant one about three patients lost and the birth of triplets. There is a strong Christian message woven throughout these stories.
This was definitely my least favorite of Dr. Larimore's trilogy about his time doctoring in the Smokey Mountains. Obviously his intent was put before the readers a very personal story that he felt was very important to tell but the rest of the book faltered and became frankly, quite dull as a result.
(book, true accounts)b. another book (the third in the series) of excellent true accounts of Dr. Larimore’s practice and time in Bryson City, located in the Smoky Mountains in North Carolina. – 5 STARS
A personal story of a Doctors experience working in the smoky mountains. Starts off very well and ends well but a Doctors life is not always exciting so at times my mind was not entertained.
Not as good as the first two books in the series, but the stories here were more heartfelt. Definitely faith-inspiring and made me feel good when I finished.
Dr. Walt Larimore continues to delight his readers with tales from his practice in the Great Smokey Mountains.
