Summary
"For the first time, Dave Baldwin, known throughout the backcountry as The Flying Doctor, shares his tales from life lived at full-throttle. From his early years struggling with dyslexia to graduating from med school, from learning to fly and joining the New Zealand Air Force to becoming a cardiologist at Palmerston North Hospital and setting up a general practice in Bulls, Dave's early life was certainly a life less ordinary. Later on he started the 'Not So Royal Flying Doctor Service', a service for the rural aviation community based at remote airstrips and farms in the backcountry, which has paved the way for a life combining his two passions: high-country flying and hunting."--Publisher information
