Santa Makes Housecalls
Christmas Stories from a Country Vet
Favorite veterinarian storyteller John McCormack breaks new ground in this heartwarming and humorous collection you will want to read in front of an open fire on a cold winter's night. From his memories of getting his first pocketknife-for a country family with limited means in 1942 it was a big deal-through his years in vet school and then practicing in rural Choctow County, Alabama, McCormack conveys the closeness of family and friends (including our furry friends) emblematic of family holiday traditions.
McCormack shares the enjoyable hazards of being a country vet, tales of family pets and farm animals he has cared for, especially during the holidays. He understands both the human and the animal heart and shares the lessons he has learned, including how his love for four-legged creatures taught him about the promise and the miracle of Christmas.
Dr. John McCormack has worked as a veterinarian throughout the South and has taught at veterinary colleges at Auburn University and the University of Georgia, among others. His books include The Hero of the Herd, Fields and Pastures New, and A Friend of the Flock. He lives in Greensboro, Georgia.
