From the Back Cover

Welcome to Bryson City, a small town tucked away in a fold of North Carolina's Smoky Mountains. The scenery is breathtaking, the home cooking can't be beat, the Maroon Devils football team is the pride of the town, and you won't find better steelhead fishing anywhere. But the best part is the people you're about to meet in the pages of Bryson City Seasons. In this joyous sequel to his bestselling Bryson City Tales, Dr. Walt Larimore whisks you along on a journey through the seasons of a Bryson City year. On the way, you'll encounter crusty mountain men, warmhearted townspeople, peppery medical personalities, and the hallmarks of a simpler, more wholesome way of life. Culled from the author's experiences as a young doctor settling into rural medical practice, these captivating stories are a celebration of this richly textured miracle called life. The whole book is delightful. My only criticism: there wasn't enough of it! Margaret Brand, MD, co-laborer with Dr. Paul Brand in leprosy work in India

Format: Hardcover
In BRYSON CITY SEASONS, Dr. Walt Larimore's follow-up to BRYSON CITY TALES, Larimore invites us into the life of one doctor and his family experiencing life as a small-town physician, grappling with inter-office politics and jealousies, family life, tricky diagnoses, and questions of faith in a rural Smoky Mountain town in North Carolina.

As this sequel opens, Larimore and his big-city wife Barb are anticipating their tenth anniversary together. Their young daughter Kate, who was born with cerebral palsy, and strong-willed colicky little boy Scott, make up this family of "flatlanders" (the term used by the locals for outsiders). The Larimores have found that Bryson City has everything you'd look for in a small town --- from Super Swain Drugs, the old-fashioned drugstore with a breakfast and lunch grill, a loyal following of the high school football team's wins and losses, and small town parades complete with Shriner clowns on mini motorcycles, to the weekly meeting of the Rotary Club. Larimore paints an enjoyable yet realistic portrait of Bryson City, with all of its inviting warmth and disappointing warts.

Unexpected tragedies --- such as a man whose head is crushed by a tree, a first encounter with the death of an AIDS patient, and concern over a baby born with Down Syndrome --- all give Larimore opportunities to reflect on God as the director of "a great production." For Larimore, even his daughter Kate's cerebral palsy is a gift from God, who "knew exactly what he was doing."

"Even though I wasn't sure of all the whys and all the reasons for the many events in my life and my patients' lives that sometimes seemed haphazard or random, I knew there was One who did," Larimore writes.

Dr. Walt Larimore returns with the second book of his series which chronicles the early days of his practice in the Smoky Mountains. This book is as charming as the first one, as the residents of tiny Bryson City try to get used to the big city ways of one of its newest practitioners. In the first book of the series, Dr. Larimore discovers that some simple country remedies work just as well or better than the latest medical technology. In this book, he learns that the key to curing patients is not only in the physical realm, but in the mental and spiritual areas as well. He goes into greater detail about his daughter's cerebral palsy, and does not hesitate to tell some funny stories in which he is the butt of the joke. This book and the others in the series make for delightful reading.

I very much enjoyed the first novel in this series, Bryson City Tales, and was delighted when this second book was published. If you are a fan of reading about small-town life, you'll love these books. Dr. Larimore's narrative brings the reader right into the story. The stories range from amusing, heartwarming, suspenseful, sad, to inspiring. I'm eagerly awaiting the next book, Bryson City Secrets, due out in March! If you're looking for a terrific read, I recommend these highly.

I just finished reading the Bryson City series by Dr. Walt Larimore. Walt is a gifted story teller who easily holds our interest as he shares about his experiences practicing medicine in the Smokey Mountains. I was riveted to these stories and didn't want to lay them down. They made me laugh and cry. I especially enjoyed the unusual characters and their experiences and how Walt walked through everyday life. His family is absolutely delightful. Walt's colorful descriptions of coworkers and townspeople made me feel like I knew them. Mountain medicine (home remedies) were a fun education in themselves. I love these books and think they make perfect gifts. I recommend that you read Bryson City Tales, Bryson City Seasons, and Bryson City Secrets in that order to get the full impact of the stories.

Dr. Walt Larimore is a nationally known doctor and communicator, but in this series of true stories he's simply "Dr. Walt" a country physician who is the best family doctor I've ever known. Add his compassion for patients with the country charm of Bryson City, which is sort of like the TV-Land town of "Mayberry" from the old Andy Griffin show, and you have a winning combination. Bryson City is a wonderful part of the country where people know each other's names and more importantly they are connected through friendship and faith.

If you are looking for a better quality of life, then slip back into the mountains of North Carolina for another round of treatment from Dr. Walt who heals with more than medicine through these real life stories. (BTW- once you begin reading about real life patients in Bryson City you may give up watching Grey's for good).

Our family lived in Bryson City for a few years and I had the privilege to work in the medical community while there. Dr. Larimore wasn't living there when our family did, but his books have brought back sweet memories of the area for me, since we have moved away. His books are fun to read and I actually know some of the characters, nodding my head several times throughout the book, thinking "yes, that is really how it is in Bryson City". A very unique little town and Dr. Larimore's books can certainly take you there... I promise you will want to visit there soon!
