The autobiographical memoir of the dentist George W. Heard, who was responsible for the national fame of Hereford, Texas as ''the town without a toothache.'' Heard describes his life, education, and career as a dentist, with many anecdotes, his own struggles with poor health, and his discoveries about health, nutrition, milk, mineral content of soil, and food therapy (similar in view to Dr. Weston Price), as well as his personal philosophy and view of life. Introduction by Chester Arthur Pierle, Professor of Chemistry at West Texas State College.
