Publisher's Summary

New doctor Andrew Manson looks forward to his post in a Welsh mining community, but he finds practicing medicine in such primitive conditions very different from his training. He makes friends, but also enemies.
First published in 1937, this book was groundbreaking in its treatment of the contentious theme of medical ethics. It is credited with laying the foundation in Great Britain for the introduction of the Nation Health Service a decade later.

Poor recording

This is a recording for the blind and of very poor quality. The story is a great one what a shame it wasn't given its due by rerecording it.
