Email this review


With pace and vitality, authentic people live, move and shape their destinies in this tale of a New Hampshire youth whose medical training under his father in New Hampshire was being extended through schooling in Edinbugh, which he found dull and too theoretical. On a summer assignment at a Scottish he found what he sought, a chance to experiment with a variety of ailments, to try out the new antitoxin for smallpox, to put theory to the tent. But he found more -- things of the spirit, of tradition, that could not be measured in ordinary terms- and he found love.
