Doctor Olds of Twillingate (Paperback)
An engrossing story of a bright John Hopkins graduate who fell in love with Newfoundland as a student, and who stayed to become the medical care system in north-easte Newfoundland for forty years. Crusty, caring and unconventional, Dr. Olds' skill and devotion made him such a folk hero that Newfoundland declared a province-wide Doctor Olds Day. Asked why he came to Twillingate for one year and stayed for forty. Newfoundland's Connecticut Yankee tersely replied, Because I liked it.
