Doctors at Sea by Robin F. Haines Doctors at Sea, Hardback (November 2005)

In this tale of movement from one hemisphere to another, we see doctors at work attending to their often demanding duties at sea. This book shows, in graphic detail, just why a few notorious voyages suffered tragic loss of life in the absence of competent supervision and demonstrates the saving of life on the Australian route in the Victorian era.
