The complete book of Australian Flying Doctor stories

by Bill Marsh | 03 July 2014
Category: General Biography
Synopsis
This is a moving and often hilarious collection of true stories about the life in the Australian Outback. Here of those whose very lives depend on the Royal Flying Doctor Service, like the man suffering from extreme burns who rode his motorbike 18km back across his property to get help while opening and closing every gate along the way because you 'always leave gates as you find them'. Out there, stoicism and a sense of humour go hand in hand, as in the case of the stockman with a compound leg fracture who, when asked by the Flying Doctor if it hurt, replied, 'oh, it itches a bit.' Through fog, lightning, thunder, flooding rains and dust storms, the Flying Doctor braves the elements to get to the remote outback landing strips where they're needed.
