Suffused with the development of healing in Wilmington and Clinton County, Ohio, it is also a paean to a charmed smalltown existence that may no longer exist. Dr. Hales portrait is filled with a vast panoply of bird dogs, horsemen, chickens, taxi drivers, storytellers, explorers -- all manner of implausible and impertinent smalltown characters both living and dead. His warm, evocative book, and handsome photographs (including a jar of tonsils containing most of Clinton Countys DNA) make the reader yearn for such a place as well as such a voyage -- one so full, so productive, and, finally, so incredibly alive.
