Publisher's Summary

A collection of real-life stories and memories that capture the experience of nursing in the bush, gathered by the inimitable Bill 'Swampy' Marsh, best-selling author of Great Australian Flying Doctor Stories and Great Australian Police Stories.

With hearts as big as the outback, rural and remote nurses are a dedicated and gutsy bunch who work selflessly to care for their communities, often in isolated and inhospitable conditions, with few resources but plenty of experience, courage and care.

This memorable and eye-opening collection of real-life accounts from nurses in the Australian bush is by turns inspiring, poignant, horrifying and hilarious - and Swampy should know. It was while he was researching this book he had a near-fatal fall from a cliff in Kakadu and experienced first-hand the skill and heroism of these outback nurses in extraordinary situations.

Nurses from Australia

The author narrates part of this book with a female narrator. It tells of several dozen different nurse’s stories of different areas and situations the nurses had to deal with. They didn’t always have the best of conditions to work under. And the distances they had to go sometimes to reach their patients was mind- boggling. Interesting book. My only problem with this was trying to understand the different use of some words and the accent. It took some getting used to, but it would’ve sounded less realistic if it wouldn’t have had that.
