So very inspiring. If only books like this were around in the 1960's perhaps I would have become something other than a teacher. Phyllis became a veterinarian when a woman's place was in the home, schoolhouse, hospital as a nurse, or secretary. She worked hard as one of the first female vets. Great story from beginning to end.
Remembrances of a horse lover. Lots of cute and interesting stories of life in the horse and vet business. Very enjoyable, but part of that is because my wife is also in love with horses. I would probably not recommend it to anyone outside of the horse/vet circle, though.

Recommends it for: Anyone interested in veterinarians
I read this book in my early teens and still love to read her story. Everytime I read it I want to go to vet school. About what a women went through in the '50s to be a vet in a male dominated field.
