Dr. Gideon Y. Sorokin does it again in this his sequel to Tales of an Unorthodox Veterinarian. Lively, robust, and downright exuberant, Tales of an Unorthodox Veterinarian, Part Two proves that the good animal doctor-cum-rabbi-cum-producer is still living life to the fullest. Nearly fifteen years have passed since readers were first introduced to the madcap adventures of the irrepressible immigrant veterinarian's memories of growing up in Palestine and Israel. As he tackled adversity and made the very most of the sweetest parts of life, he taught readers to celebrate struggle and understand the Jewish way of life. Now, in the same vein, he shares a smart and timely message of tenacity, strength, and the American way.
