THE ROAD TO WELLVILLE
Will Lightbody is a man with a stomach ailment whose only sin is loving his wife, Eleanor too much. Eleanor is a health nut, and when in 1907 she journeys to Dr. John Harvey Kellogg's infamous Battle Creek, Michigan spa to live out the vegetarian ethos, Will goes too. Truth and fiction are blended in this splendid novel full of wonderful characters and broad satire.
This is an unusual and amusing story of how one man thought he had a cure for ailments in 1907 Michigan, using food and exercise type therapy while persons stayed at his institution to get well. It is fiction and reads like a literary novel. Very entertaining.
