I recently read Crowded in the Middle of Nowhere by Bo Brock (2014).
BB is a veterinarian who practiced for
decades in the small west Texas town of Lamesa.
In this book he tells stories of his many years of service to the animal
raisers and animal lovers of most of the western half of Texas and parts of New Mexico. His tales speak to the powerful relationships
that develop between animals and their owners.
BB interweaves humor, insight, sadness, wisdom, and melancholy in this
book, giving readers a bird's eye view of the animals and the people who passed
through his “clinic” for decades. It’ll
make you laugh; it’ll make you cry.
Well worth the read. Thanks for
the rec, MW.
