This is an auction for YOU ARE A BRAVE MAN: A KIWI ODYSSEY IN THE HIMALAYAS by Elizabeth Harding. reviews:

"YOU ARE A BRAVE MAN is an account of the author's experience of Khunde Hospital in Nepal, where she battled the cold, and coped with poor facilities, unfamiliar ailments and a chauvinistic society. The book touches on all aspects of the human condition, and provides an insight into another world."

"Elizabeth Harding and her partner Diane Bush spent two years working at Sir Edmund Hillary's Khunde Hospital in the shadow of the Himalayas. During their stay, one of the locals asked Elizabeth how many doctors worked alongside her at the hospital. When she replied she was the only doctor there, he announced, 'You are a very brave man'".

“FIVE STARS!!! This book was an easy read, minus the village names and medical terms. Reading it, you really felt there and felt for Liz and Diane. You learn some amazing stuff about humankind, to the point that I doubt you will think the same again. It will move you, make you laugh and horrify you.”
