A 50 year experience in Papua New Guinea

Product Description:

Author: Anthony J Radford
A dokta at large in the land of the unexpected . . .

This story begins in the late 1950s, when as a medical student the author is dropped into an isolated enclave of Europeans surrounded by mountains in the central Highlands of New Guinea. Four years later, he returns, going on to establish comprehensive training programmes in rural medicine, while serving as the only doctor for 50,000 people. After a decade, he leaves PNG, returning on numerous occasions as a consultant over the next 40 years.

This story covers a 50 year experience in PNG from pre-self-government with missionaries, miners and administrators to a country listed as one of the most corrupt, violent and least comfortable places in the world in which to live, one still struggling to forge an identity and assert itself as an independent nation.

Author: Greg Storr

Fishing the limits, teaching the limits, pushing the limits and enforcing the limits.

Who in their right mind ...

• goes out at night without any means of calling for help with the intention of throwing fish caught by strangers back into the water and expect to survive ?

• makes fun of the boss and expect to get away with it ?

• plans to spend an evening with the estranged wife of an acquaintance and expect your wife to understand ?

... Greg did.

These stories along with their outcomes are just some of those included in these books.

I am sure you know someone in your community who could be the person I have written about because practical jokers, fishing and crime are not restricted to any geographical boundaries.

240mm x 170mm
149pp + Cover

ISBN: 9780646973562

A young horse named Sheba ended up with me. Being inexperienced I had no idea what I was doing. I always had a passion to entertain people. My lazy brumby certainly not a Ferrari of the horse world, really didn’t have it. Sheba bucked me off and I ended up in hospital. The doctors said I was lucky to be alive. Persistence proved Sheba, like me, was born to entertain.

I believe she was given to me by God and children adored her. Families came to see this unusual performing horse doing a bow for anyone who wanted to ride her. At a church gathering on Henley beach, when it was time to break bread, Sheba decided to eat the whole loaf.

"It's not what we did that made us special, it's Sheba's relationship with people that made her special."

Have Stethoscope Will Travel is the story of a doctor, who in retirement, joined a band of locum general practitioners to the towns and communities of rural and remote South Australia.
