Everyone has heroes they look up to. As a young girl, the hero I looked up to was my dad, Dr. Fay Nutter. In this book, "No Ordinary Hero" my father's passion for his patients as a family doctor is captured throughout this collection of short stories. My favorite story about Dad and his passion for his patients is, "The Day Max Walked." Reimbursement for medical fees is described in a humorous way in the story, "A Horse for an Appendectomy." Yet this book is not just about Dad as a family doctor. Read about the enduring love of my mother and father in "Fay and Verla." Laugh and smile when you read the humorous stories of my childhood including one of my favorites "Heidi and Tinkerbell." Reflect with me as you read about a young female teen experiencing the changing role of women in the nineteen sixties and early seventies. Experience the summer vacation atmosphere of living at Lake Okoboji, Iowa through the eyes and soul of a young female adolescent. In today's face paced world, these stories can take you back to a time when life was much simpler and when doctors made house calls.
