Publisher's 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.

Skyhorse Publishing, along with our Arcade, Good Books, Sports Publishing, and Yucca imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of biographies, autobiographies, and memoirs. Our list includes biographies on well-known historical figures like Benjamin Franklin, Nelson Mandela, and Alexander Graham Bell, as well as villains from history, such as Heinrich Himmler, John Wayne Gacy, and O. J. Simpson. We have also published survivor stories of World War II, memoirs about overcoming adversity, first-hand tales of adventure, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

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.

    This book is outstanding, a true story of a dr. from an amish community in Ohio. As one who travels there a few times a yr. for many years this book was fantastic! What a dr. so dedicated to his patients, it seems he never sleeps or has time for himself though. You won't be disappointed with this book!

    This is an excellent book about one doctor's call to serve through love and loss in Amish Country. Just like life, the stories cover the full range of human emotion from joyful and funny to heart-wrenching. Through it all Dr. Lehman's life provides an inspiring story of faith, compassion and the desire to make a difference.
