Nurses of the Outback

Author(s): Annabelle Brayley

Biography, Memoir & Autobiography

The work of a nurse is challenging enough, but when you add a remote location, the stakes are so much higher. Meet fifteen courageous people who prove that the outback runs on nurse power. There's Anna, who is on duty as the fury of Cyclone Yasi tears through inland Queensland; Maureen in outback New South Wales, who faces everything from a snakebite to a helicopter crash; Aggie, who overcomes her demons to help young people in the Kimberley; and Catherine, newly graduated and determined to make a difference in the Gulf Country she and her rodeo-riding husband call home. From some of the most remote places on the earth, these stories bring the outback to life - we witness the harshness and isolation as well as the camaraderie of life in small towns in the middle of nowhere. These intrepid nurses tend to life-threatening emergencies, manage everyday health care and even patch up the local pets. From Bidyadanga to Broken Hill, Mount Isa to Marree, these tales are by turns moving and inspiring, full of gutsy feats and classic outback spirit. Annabelle Brayley collected the stories that appeared in the bestselling Bush Nurses.
