Doc is an engaging memoir from Ron Losee, a Yale Medical
School graduate who, in 1949, headed west with his wife,
Olive, and their two-year-old daughter to find a place to
settle down and practice medicine. The four hundred
townspeople of Ennis, Montana, needed a doctor, and
Ronald E. Losee, M.D., became "Doc." Losee's patients are
a broad panoply of characters. Townspeople, cattle
ranchers and migrant workers, miners and fly fishermen,
new mothers and old folks - each, in his or her own way,
preserving an American way of life that is rapidly
vanishing. With them, Losee learns from his failures and
rejoices in his triumphs. Eventually, his yearning for
knowledge propels him into a two-year stint at the Royal
Victoria Hospital in Montreal for an orthopedic
residency. He returns to Montana a specialist, and so
begins the orthopedic work that gains him, in his middle
years, international recognition.
