Product Description

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. This book is a sometimes humorous and often intimate account of Dr. Elton Lehman's 36 years practicing medicine among the Amish of Holmes County, Ohio, for which he was named Country Doctor of the Year. This is the story of a beloved doctor working among a respected people and the insights they exchanged, told by someone who knows both firsthand. Hoover's anecdotal style takes readers on house calls and into 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.

          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.

Author Bio

     
     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.
