Telling selected true stories from his books Bryson City Tales and More Bryson City Tales, author Walt Larimore shares the heart, the humor, and the humility of a raw young doctor in his very first days as a new family doctor in a little town in the Appalachian Mountains. Read by Walt Larimore.
An audio CD of the author reading selected stories from both his books 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.
Dr. Walt Larimore has been a medical journalist since 1995. He hosted a nationally syndicated health news feature and has appeared on NBC's The Today Show; CBS Good Morning; CNN Headline News and PBS' Family Works. He practiced family medicine for over twenty years, served as a volunteer physician for the U.S. Olympic Committee, and has been named in Distinguished Physicians of America, Best Doctors in America, and Who's Who in Healthcare and Medicine. He has written or co-written a dozen books, including: Bryson City Tales, Alternative Medicine, 10 Essentials of Highly Healthy People, The Honeymoon Of Your Dreams and His Brain, Her Brain.
