Red Pepper Burns

Red Pepper Burns

About this book

Redfield Pepper Burns, M.D., has flaming red hair and all of the temper and vivacity said to go with it. The small-town physician and surgeon maintains a grueling schedule, racing with his nurse from call to call in a powerful touring car, the Green Imp. He must contend with epidemics, professional jealousies, stubborn or deadbeat patients, and a lack of sophisticated surgical instruments. In this first volume of "Red Pepper" Burns stories, the doctor saves a friend from morphine addiction, takes in a young orphan, suffers an accident that may cripple his scalpel hand, and finally looks up from his work long enough to notice one of his many female admirers.
