Item description for Bryson City Seasons: More Tales of a Doctor's Practice in the Smoky Mountains (Christian Softcover Originals) by Walt Larimore...
Overview Journey through the seasons with a young doctor as he establishes his practice in a North Carolina mountain hamlet. With characters as colorful as autumn maples and events as varied as cloud shadows crossing the ridges, Walt Larimore's vibrant slices of small-town living will capture your imagination and warm your heart. Sequel to Bryson City Tales Dr. Larimore whisks you along on a journey through the seasons of another year in Bryson City. On the way, you'll encounter crusty mountain men, warmhearted townspeople, peppery medical personalities, and the hallmarks of a simpler, more wholesome way of life. Culled from the author's experiences as a young doctor settling into rural medical practice, these captivating stories paint a collage of small-twon faces, events, customs, perspectives, and faith. Lit with love, humor, glowing faith, and the warmth of family and friendship, and tempered with the bright and dark realities of country medicine, Bryson City Seasons is a celebration of this richly textured miracle called life.

Reviews - What do customers think about Bryson City Seasons: More Tales of a Doctor's Practice in the Smoky Mountains (Christian Softcover Originals)?
Healing people with more than medicine Nov 3, 2007
Dr. Walt Larimore is a nationally known doctor and communicator, but in this series of true stories he's simply "Dr. Walt" a country physician who is the best family doctor I've ever known. Add his compassion for patients with the country charm of Bryson City, which is sort of like the TV-Land town of "Mayberry" from the old Andy Griffin show, and you have a winning combination. Bryson City is a wonderful part of the country where people know each other's names and more importantly they are connected through friendship and faith.
If you are looking for a better quality of life, then slip back into the mountains of North Carolina for another round of treatment from Dr. Walt who heals with more than medicine through these real life stories. (BTW- once you begin reading about real life patients in Bryson City you may give up watching Grey's for good).
Book review Oct 22, 2007
Good series of books for pleasure reading. I enjoy books that take place in the NC mountains.
Doctoring the body and the soul Apr 13, 2006
Dr. Walt Larimore returns with the second book of his series which chronicles the early days of his practice in the Smoky Mountains. This book is as charming as the first one, as the residents of tiny Bryson City try to get used to the big city ways of one of its newest practitioners. In the first book of the series, Dr. Larimore discovers that some simple country remedies work just as well or better than the latest medical technology. In this book, he learns that the key to curing patients is not only in the physical realm, but in the mental and spiritual areas as well. He goes into greater detail about his daughter's cerebral palsy, and does not hesitate to tell some funny stories in which he is the butt of the joke. This book and the others in the series make for delightful reading.
Terrific Read! Jan 24, 2006
I very much enjoyed the first novel in this series, Bryson City Tales, and was delighted when this second book was published. If you are a fan of reading about small-town life, you'll love these books. Dr. Larimore's narrative brings the reader right into the story. The stories range from amusing, heartwarming, suspenseful, sad, to inspiring. I'm eagerly awaiting the next book, Bryson City Secrets, due out in March! If you're looking for a terrific read, I recommend these highly.

Very good! Really good for older readers who can appreciate the memories/stories of a young doctor ,husband, and father practicing in the N. C. Mountians. I recommend this book---as well as the first one---Bryson City Tales
