Detailed Product Description
France, 2007, 1st edition. 382 pp, no photos. In French. Emmanuel Cauchy takes his nickname 'Doctor Vertical' from columns he writes for the magazine Vertical. He writes in his dual capacity as a guide and doctor attached to the mountain rescue in the Mont Blanc massif. At the time of his thousandth rescue, he recalls memories of fifteen years of practice of an extraordinary profession. He delves into this unique experience to compose a book funny, sometimes caustic, moving and without complacency.
 
It describes adventure mountaineering, helicopter and emergency medicine. Stories give you shivers down your back or you raise tears in his eyes. There are also episodes funny and absurd. Starting from facts, 'Doctor Vertical' has created a book without heroism or naive optimistism, which is a new testimony on mountain rescue and a tribute to those who love peaks. Thick paperback.
