Foreword by Senator The Hon. Henry D. Hicks, C.C. Q.C. More than any other region in North America, Cape Breton retains its Scottish heritage and character. In this lively tradition, stories are spun with delicate expertise, warmth and originality, and few rural GPs could tell of their experiences with more colour and charm than Dr. C. Lamont MacMillan. Dr. MacMillan began his practice as a country doctor in 1928, serving the area around Baddeck, Cape Breton Island for 40 years. The events of which he writes cover a time span of more than 100 years, most of them based on his own experiences, some of them on the recollections of his oldest patients and friends. Small gift sticker to ffep. A clean bright book in an illustrated wrap-around dust jacket. Jacket illustration by Alan Daniel. Bookseller Inventory # B1914
