Gideon Sorokin and his family escaped from Austria to the new Israel in the late 1930's. This book is the story of an astoundingly entrepreneurial young Gideon and his family's struggle to survive in their new home.
It is also the story of Gideon's years in veterinary school and his problems with establishing himself as a veterinarian in Israel.
Horrifying, heartwrenching and warming. Never a dull moment.
