Dr. Brock is a veterinarian in Lamesa, Texas. His life has been filled with humorous and touching moments as he's doctored pets as well as farm animals. In Crowded in the Middle of Nowhere, he shares a variety of stories that have come from his life as a vet.

Some of these stories made me laugh out loud, such as the story of Dr. Brock suturing a large gash on a horse in the middle of a Harley Davidson compound. Some made me teary, such as the stories of the clinic dog and all the great memories of him after he passed away.
Dr. Brock has a personable style of writing. This is his first book, although he's frequently been a speaker at events, and he's told his humorous stories many places- even to a group of terminally ill patients in a hospital one Christmas. His writing style is conversational, as if he's talking and telling his stories.
I thoroughly loved this memoir. As an animal lover myself, I could feel Dr. Brock's love of all of the animals he's treated over the years. I loved his writing style. I laughed, and I even cried at times.
I can definitely recommend Crowded in the Middle of Nowhere. You can find it on Amazon here, and you can read a sample below.
