A Wilder Life : Journey of an Adventuring Doctor, Paperback / softback Book

A Wilder Life : Journey of an Adventuring Doctor Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

A doctor follows her calling to practise medicine in wild, remote placesDr Joan Louwrens has always been drawn to wild places, which are balm to her soul.

When her husband died, leaving her alone with two small daughters to raise, she threw herself wholeheartedly into 'adventure medicine', seeking out the world's most remote corners - on land and at sea - to practise healing, both her own and others.

Working in wild places from the Kruger Park to the Australian Outback, the Atlantic Ocean islands, and both the Arctic and Antarctic, 'Doctor Joan' dealt with a vast range of medical issues, from rabies to deep-vein thrombosis, childbirth to wisdom-tooth extraction, catatonia to depression. Showing an eagerness to learn and a humility that aren't always a given in her profession, and with a wry eye and a sympathetic outlook, Joan Louwrens has written a memoir that's a poignant and often funny story of a life lived to the full.
