"Medicine Men" is a bestseller. It follows "Heart in the Right Place" which was a Wall Street Journal bestseller and #1 on Amazon in Biography, Memoir, Science, and Medicine.

"Medicine Men" is a extraordinary collection of the most memorable moments from old-school rural physicians who each practiced medicine for more than 50 years in the Southern Appalachian Mountains.

It contains hilarious, heroic, and heartwarming true stories of miracle cures, ghost dogs, and much madcap medical mayhem. Quotations in the book are rendered as they were spoken - in real-life Appalachian dialect.

Jourdan's work is often compared to James Herriot and Bill Bryson. Her first book is on hundreds of lists of best books of the year, best book club books, and funniest books. "Heart in the Right Place" was chosen as Family Circle magazine's first ever Book of the Month and has won many awards, such as the Elle magazine Reader's Prize.
