Reviews

A lively and touching debut. Sims' writing moves at a rapid-pace, in step with the life-and-death tales he recounts, slowing down only to focus on such moving occasions as the birth of a three-pound baby and the painful death of a hospital colleague. Sims has delivered a captivating account of practicing medicine in the furthest reaches of the U.S.
The best parts of the memoir are, without doubt, the fast-paced accounts of some of the doctor's medical cases and situations, [which are] fascinating and often harrowing. It's apparent that Sims's time in Nome made a great impression on him.
