Green mountain doctor

£9.99

Product description

In the early 1960's the 'winds of change' were blowing through southern Africa.

A young Doctor, recently qualified and ridiculously inexperienced, found himself in charge of a hospital in Basutoland, high in the Drakensberg mountains.

In this remote British Protectorate, in surroundings completely alien to his background and training, he was expected to cover all aspects of medicine, including obstetrics, surgery, public health and forensic pathology, with sole responsibility for the medical care of many thousands of people.

As he struggled to conquer his fear and adapt to his surroundings he was also learning to be a husband and father.

This is the story of a fascinating and extraordinary period in a young mans life.
