Format: Paperback
Doctor in Rags is a chapter book written for young readers by Louise Vernon. The story is both about the Doctor Paracelsus and the Hutterites. I had never heard of Paracelsus and I have never read much about the Hutterites so I found myself learning quite bit about both.

The main character is Michael, a young man, and his sister, Gudryn. They are first introduced to the Hutterites and the Doctor when their Mother invites the Hutterites to build a Bruderhof on her estate. At this time, Gudryn is seriously ill and although famous city doctors have been called into attendance it is the "Doctor in Rags" who cures her. At this time in the history of the Hutterites, it was against the law to allow them to settle in colonies. Soon, Michael and Gudryn's mother is arrested and they must flee when the estate is captured. They have nowhere to go but to follow the Hutterites in their wanderings. In staying with them, the two learn a lot about Hutterite living and they also learn of their mother through a letter the Hutterites receive. She has at this point converted and become a Hutterite herself. The story ends with Michael and Gudryn becoming reuniting with their Mother. Throughout the whole book, Michael has been drawn to the Doctor Paracelsus and the work he does. Scenes of the Doctor and Michael being put together are scattered throughout the book. Since Michael is at the age where he needs to decide what career to launch out on, there is some pressure on him as he examines different career paths that he sees various Hutterite men embarking on. He is unsure however, if becoming a doctor is his call as he also is drawn to the work of the missionary Hutterites who go out to preach.
