Medicine Men is a extraordinary collection of the most memorable moments from a dozen 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. Quotations in the book are rendered as they were spoken — in real-life Appalachian dialect.
