They Called Me Doc - Doc Race recalls his practice in Orting (Washington State) between 1947 and 1953; by George A Race, MD; 2005; 6x9; 220 pp; Item #: HQP016.

This is the story of Doc Race, and his years in practice in Orting, Washington. The names of the individual patients (and some others) involved were changed to protect the innocent, and at times, the guilty. If you happen to be an old-timer, you might very well be able to identify the people involved just by their characteristics.

It's a great read. If you have any interest in what was the small town of Orting, Washington (population 1250) mid-20th Century, you'll love this book.
