Title: A Doctor's Calling.
Description: Vancouver, Douglas & McIntyre. 1986, First Edition. (ISBN: 0888945213) Hard Cover with dust jacket. 224 pp, 9 1/4" H. "In this anecdotal recounting of his boyhood years, his experiences in medical school, where he met his wife Janet, also a doctor, and his service in the armed forces during World War II and after, Morris Gibson shows what life is like for a doctor at large. He is a man devoted to healing, whether in England, or in a foothills town in Alberta, a western province of Canada. With his family, he makes his way with skill and intuition, curing when he can, listening and learning when he cannot. He recalls simple people in complex situations, the amazing effects of medical break-throughs, tragedy and triumph. And all is told in his original voice, that of a man who learns not only by seeing his patients as individuals as unique as their medical problems, but by applying his skill as a doctor to a changing world." Minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has some very minor edge wrinkling, minor rubbing. Very Good+/Very Good+.
