This book was very well written and kept my interest throughout. Pat Ivey tells the story of her life as an EMT with compassion and discretion. If you are looking for a gorefest of graphic descriptions, this is not the book for you. Rather it is the story of the emotions that drive one rural EMT to join, stay with, and progress in a volunteer country ambulance squad. It was a very personal and compelling read.
This book brought back so many wonderful memories of the time I spent on a rescue squad. The losses hurt but the saves make them bearable. Thanks Pal Ivey for the reminder of an important time in my life and thank you for your service. This book is the real deal. Highly recommended.
