Description

Cutting Across Continents Composed of pioneering contributions to mountaineering, photography, health care, and the environment, the extraordinary life of Ebenezer Teichelmann the early-20th-century New Zealander affectionately known as "the little doctor"  is explored in this biography. From his childhood to his studies in Australia and Europe and his rustic, conservationist adult life, a complete picture of this surgeon-general turned outdoorsman emerges. Surgeon, public health promoter, explorer, photographer, philanthropist, gardener, humanitarian, and soldier  all are essential facets of this fascinating and passionate man. First published 2006.
