This uniquely American true tale about an island physician off the coast of Maine. Fresh out of training, Dr. Chuck Radis convinces his wife, Sandi, to move to Peaks Island to fulfill a Public Health scholarship obligation. Absent-minded and initially oblivious to island mores, Dr. Radis slowly adapts to a medical practice where x-rays and advanced laboratory testing are available only on the mainland. When he travels to the outer islands of Casco Bay for house calls, he relies on his physical examination skills and Bass-Master tackle box filled with emergency medications to successfully manage his patients.
Go by Boat is a respite from contemporary living, immersing the reader in the distinct cultures of four Maine Island communities, Peaks, Chebeague, Long, and Cliff Islands.
