Dr. Sterling Haynes practiced in Kamloops from 1967 to 1982.
"Beginning his medical practice in the wild frontier town of Williams Lake in the 1960s, the author has travelled the world as a doctor, an observer and an humanist. Stories of treating aboriginal people and white settlers in the Cariboo region join with stories of treating southern workers and Vietnam vets in Alabama and of travels in Central America to create a thought-provoking picture of the world today. Sterling Haynes was raised in central Alberta, graduated from the University of Alberta, served as a British Colonial officer in Nigeria and practiced medicine in British Columbia and Alabama."

Starting with earliest known physicians and ending with Osler, in 1919 this is a series of sketches of doctors and their contributions to civilization. Each sketch is a background against which the men worked and a history of the men themselves.
