Island Nurses: Stories of Birth, Life and Death on Remote Great Barrier Island

Out of Stock. Usually despatches within 2 weeks.

Description

Leonie Howie and Adele Robertson live and work on remote Great Barrier Island - so called because it faces the full brunt of the wild Pacific weather and acts as a barrier for the mainland about 100 kilometres away. With a population of about 1000, no reticulated electricity, no ATM machine, no street lights and one pub, this is a wildly beautiful place. It has a long history of farming, whaling and fishing, and the people who live here are a resilient lot, proud of their community.

Midwifery and nursing on a remote island bring a wide range of dramas and emergencies, and here Adele and Leonie share the islanders' stories - sometimes tragic, sometimes happy, sometimes funny - from over 30 years of challenging yet uplifting work.
