I was rather disappointed in the Sagebrush Dentist. This is because I thought it was a true story where Seely was writing down the memoir of Dr. Frackelton, when I started it, but after I got fifty pages in, I started to not believe the stories. I was thinking this couldn’t have all happened in real life, so I started to research the guy to see if he was known to exaggerate. Well, it turned out this book was fiction. Yes, fiction.
It is an old book published in 1940, so I guess I was reading somewhat of a classic. If you like the old writing style, you might like this even if the story line isn’t the best. I did find it a little bit humorous, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to recommend this book. If you love westerns, you’ll like it, but just remember it’s fiction.
