Description - Essex County Volume 3 The Country Nurse by Jeff Lemire

The Country Nurse & Other Rural Legends, Myths, and Half-Truths follows a day in the life of Anne Morgan, the peculiar farming communities traveling nurse. As Anne checks in on her favorite patients we are introduced to such rural legends as the boy called Jimmy-Elelphant-Ears, and the Essex Farmer's Boxing Club! The story delves deeper into Essex County's mythology and finally reveals how all three volumes stitch together, quilting a portrait of how loss and regret push and pull at the fabric of family in small town life.
