Summary

Sixteen stories of amazing outback doctors and their heroic deeds, from the best-selling author of Nurses of the Outback.

Imagine yourself critically injured or seriously ill in the middle of nowhere. You'd be hoping like hell there was a doctor nearby to take charge - someone resourceful, who'd think quickly and stay calm under pressure; someone who could, if necessary, take charge from a distance. You'd want to be in the safe and sure hands of one of these amazing bush doctors.

They might work in some of the most spectacular locations in Australia - from the splendid isolation of the Kimberley and the wide open spaces of outback Queensland to the freezing icecaps of Antarctica - but their profession demands long hours, extensive medical knowledge and, sometimes, courage beyond their experience.

Meet some of the extraordinary medicos who save lives everyday beyond the great divide including Jenny Wilson, the locum with itchy feet who roams Australia and beyond to help people; Rolf Gomes, who built a 'heart truck' to take life-saving medical advice to the inland; and Molly Shorthouse who cares for people's mental health. And, always, there's the Royal Flying Doctors....

From the best-selling author of Nurses of the Outback, Bush Doctors is a powerful and captivating tribute to all rural and remote doctors - unsung Australian heroes who truly do care.

couldn't keep my attention on it

I didn't realize it was going to be series of short chapters each on a different doctor. The lack of continuity just couldn't hold my attention.
