January 12, 2017 – Stepping from Herriot’s Shadow

Dr. Bill Stork, Lake Mills veterinarian, has published his second book, called Stepping from Herriot’s Shadow. The book contains more musings by a country veterinarian, 276 pages of simple truths often lost amidst political bickering and the darkness of the evening news. It’s the perfect antidote to pessimism and anger.

The humorous and heart-warming stories serve as a reminder that attitude really is everything. The author will expand on his new release and copies of the book will be available for sale.
