Quick Overview

Andrew Cameron grew up in the Hawke's Bay, New Zealand, and came to nursing after several years working at a range of jobs. When not working in a war-zone or post-conflict zone, he is the sole medical practitioner in Birdsville, Australia, on the edge of the Simpson Desert and home of the famous Birdsville Races.

'Currently I am working in an operating theatre of a military hospital. There is no running water. From time to time I have to go in a light plane and retrieve people from afar. The case yesterday near the Ethiopian border was a small boy who had been shot in the jaw and the bullet went down through the shoulder. Later today I have to go and retrieve two other gunshot-wounded patients and a man who has been bitten by a tiger. They are sending me tomorrow to Kodok on Upper Nile, to work in a small hospital in opposition territory, so that will be interesting; well, not dull at least.' So writes Red Cross Nurse and New Zealander Andrew Cameron, winner of the coveted Florence Nightingale Medal. In this gripping book he recounts his remarkable life nursing in some of the world's most dangerous and challenging locations, including Sudan, Sierra Leone and Afghanistan
