The compelling true story of a troubled teenager who found both his manhood and his calling rather abrubtly when as a medical corpsman, he treated the wounds of those who fell in the killing fields of Korea during the early '50s.
After sharing much of the fascinating history of being a medical student during those times following his discharge, he recalls many of his adventures as a young country doctor in rural Kentucky. He also capsulizes the many blessings of his first marriage, including raising a family of four children, then recounts the various woes of a marriage gone bad and ending in a painful divorce.
The next part of his book details a memoir of his second marriage, this time to a remarkable nurse--an RN--who becomes not only his wife, but a close partner in his medical practice, and an officer and later the president of the international benevolent mission to Haiti known as MISSIONS OF LOVE, Inc., a medically oriented mission the two of them co-founded and over which Dr Bob presided until health issues prevented his continuing.
Much of the book addresses their many years of organic living on a horse farm in Kentucky, and contains many excerpts from his journals of their farming and gardening, along with several of his poems written in those days.
The Johnsons were also blue water sailors and Dr. Bob regales his readers with many of their adventures in sailing throughout the Caribbean over the years.
