This is the engrossing story of a bright John Hopkins graduate who fell in love with Newfoundland as a student and became the medical care system in north-east Newfoundland for 40 years. Crusty, caring and unconventional, John Olds' surgical skill and devotion made him a folk hero. Olds helped pioneer thoracic and orthopedic surgery in Newfoundland. In 1970 Newfoundland declared a province wide "Dr. Olds Day;" asked why he came to Twillingate for one year and stayed for 40, Newfoundland's Connecticut Yankee tersely replied: "Because I liked it."
