Item Description...
A country doctor shares a collection of anecdotes and reminscences about his thirty-six-year career working among the Amish people of Wayne, Holmes, and other Ohio counties, capturing the world of a family practitioner in a rural, predominantly Amish community as he shares the lives, illnesses, and deaths of his patients. Reprint.

Publishers Description

Medical technology meets rural, Amish values of simplicity, home health remedies, and unwavering faith in divine providence when a country-boy-turned-country doctor returns to his roots in Ohio.
Medical technology meets rural values of simplicity, home health remedies, and unwavering faith in divine providence when a country-boy-turned-country-doctor returns to his roots. House Calls and Hitching Posts is a sometimes humorous and often intimate account of Dr. Elton Lehman's 36 years practicing medicine among the Amish of Wayne, Holmes, and surrounding counties in Ohio, for which he was named Country Doctor of the Year.
Now you can witness house calls and private moments between doctors and patients. Joe brings his dismembered fingers to the office in a coffee can filled with kerosene. Katie delivers a boy for the doctor's first home-birth. And three-year-old Davy rallies to overcome a life-threatening illness at birth only to be crushed under a tractor wheel. Hoover captures in sometimes local vernacular the joys and dilemmas of a family practitioner among a rural and predominantly-Amish community. Includes two galleries of photographs from Dr. Lehman's distinguished career.

Dorcas Sharp Hoover, a former school teacher, lives with her family in Dover, Ohio, a short drive from what is known as "Amish country." Dorcas is married to Jerry, pastor and businessman. They have six children ages five to 19. Dr. Elton Lehman delivered four of the Hoovers' six children in the birthing center he designed. At every delivery, he always had a new story to tell. Jerry Hoover would say, "Dr. Lehman, you need to write a book!" Dr. Lehman would reply, "Yes, but I'm not a writer." And then, Dr. Lehman asked Dorcas if she would write his story. House Calls and Hitching Posts is Dorcas' fourth book.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent book about a modern "country doctor"  Jan 8, 2008
This is an excellent book. I have recommended it to one of my colleagues who is a recognized authority on the history of medicine. Dr. Lehman comes across as a realist and a caring professional. His practice is/was heavy on births and traumatic farm injuries. While there are many examples of these in the text, they never become tedious.

The book also gives a warm glimpse into the lives of the Amish people and their lifestyle and beliefs. One enlightening incident involved an elderly farm woman who had sustained a stroke at home in bed. Her husband sent for the doctor. Dr. Lehman recognized that the woman had little time left. The husband asks, "Is there anything the hospital could do for her that we can't do here?" The answer came back, "Essentially 'No." The woman passed away a few hours later in familiar surroundings, in her own bed, with her family and friends at her bedside. All of us readers can only hope for so peaceful an ending ourselves.
Great Read  Dec 21, 2007
I've always been interested in the Amish People and this book is good learning for anyone who is interested in the Amish. I've read this book 2 times already and I hope there will be a sequel.
Doctoring the Amish  Sep 16, 2007
If you are interested in Amish culture, this is a great book to read to get a snapshot of what types of challenges, ethical and medical, on a typical Amish farm. The writing style is easy to follow and very descriptive. The Amish people have such a strong faith and are very family oriented which is a refreshing change to read. If you are a nurse or a physician, you would really appreciate the ingenuity that is needed when dealing with blunt force trauma from a farming accident or just the challenge of getting to someone's rural home in 6 feet of snow.
Dr. to the amish  Apr 11, 2007
This was a wonderful book . Once I started reading it I could not put it down. It is amazing to realize that there are still Dr.'s out in the world that care so much for their patients.
