David R. Gross is incredibly knowledgeable in his field as evidenced by the wealth of his professional publications. Now he casts his pen to a memoir reminiscent of James Herriot, but on American soil.

Fresh out of veterinary school, a young doctor cares for animals in the Yellowstone Park area in the 1960s. The memoir is a leisurely-paced book from a kinder time in our history, chock full of fascinating animals, people and memories. The author easily draws you into his world in this captivating

The 4 stars would only apply to a reader truly interested in rural veterinarian practices in the 60s. I was fascinated by the detail but many wouldn't be.

Great story

The author wrote a very good story about the human and animal sides of his practice.
Some of the stories could have been fleshed out more and the book ended rather abruptly. But it was still an interesting read with a good look at veterinary practices during the time period.

Introduction: I was introduced to this book last year when Dr. Gross became a member of Independent Authors and Writers. The synopsis of the book written on the site was well written and piqued my interest. I selected it as book of the day for Lynn's Literary Listing: http://www.independentauthors.org/201... As a result, Dr. Gross gifted me a book with the understanding that I would give it an honest review.

Story line as I see it: This is an autobiography of David R. Gross. It began shortly befo

What a great book! Basically, it’s a memoir of a vet doc David, full of kind-hearted and sometimes humorous recollections of his first years of practice. I absolutely loved how the author described not only every animal he encountered and treated, their appearance and character, but also their owners and their relationship with their pets or farm animals. I applauded the bravery with which David made sometimes fateful decisions for animals and managed to save many lives along the way, quickly ev ...more
Christie
Overall, the book was enjoyable and held my interest. The author described his clients and patients well and told a good story. However, there are a few reasons I didn't rate it higher. First, I was distracted by the poor editing. For example, dessert (the tasty treat after dinner) was spelled "desert"...twice. The author mentioned that food was placed in aluminum "bowels" (should have been "bowls"). "Car" was spelled "care." It seemed no one bothered to proofread the book! My book club members ...more

Dr. Gross details his adventures 50 years ago as a young vet in his first job. He and his wife moved to Montana, newly married and inexperienced in life, so that Dr. Gross could take his first job under old-timer Dr. Schultz. The practice was built in a small town far from any big city. Dr. Gross finds himself becoming both a small and large animal expert as he tackles challenges of small town practice daily. The book follows him through his tenure on this first job.

It's interesting to read abo

Animals Don’t Blush takes the reader on an enjoyable, eye-opening journey through the ups and downs of a first-year veterinarian in Montana. In accessible, often hilarious language, author David Gross shares a variety of different anecdotes highlighting his rather entertaining experiences as the primary caregiver for a wide cross section of four-legged patients. Throughout the pages of Animals Don’t Blush, Gross’ considerable expertise shines through, as well as the deep-rooted compassion he has ...more
