More Tales from a Country Vet

The bestselling first volume of Mud, Sweat and Tears tells the story of Bud Ings’ adventures as a rural veterinarian in the 1950s. Volume II takes us into the 1960s. Whether he was helping to deliver a calf, giving shots of penicillin to a pig, or putting down a beloved horse, Ings treated each animal—and farmer—with dignity and respect. Ings’ memoirs are rich, often humorous accounts of the life of a rural veterinarian.

In The Home Place: Life in Rural Prince Edward Island in the 1920s and 30s, Jean Halliday MacKay paints a vivid picture of life in the early part of the twentieth century. She begins with a brief look at the Halliday family's arrival to Belfast as "Selkirk Settlers" in the early 1800s. There they settled and farmed, becoming part and parcel of the Island's historical landscape. Written especially for her family, this book is primarily about the time of Jean's growing up.

Mud, Sweat and Tears tells the story of Bud Ings’ adventures as a rural veterinarian in the 1950s. As one of Prince Edward Island’s first professionally trained veterinarians, Ings set up his practice in the eastern town of Souris before moving to Montague. Farms were rarely close at hand, however, and the sight of Bud Ings behind the wheel of his Volkswagen Bug became a familiar one on the Island’s highways and muddy back roads.
