Overview

Gweneth Wisewould had no direct descendents of her own but the Australian farming community in Central Victoria was as important to her as a family. Moving from Melbourne in the 1930s, she soon became respected and was known only as “The Doctor” for over 30 years. This book recounts her historical view of the people, their lives and illnesses, the beauty and ferocity of the local environment and great difficulties being the sole doctor practising in all weathers and harsh conditions. Her material possessions only had value to serve the purpose for which they were intended. She devoted her life to the treatment and well being of the patient.
“Outpost” exposes her great sense of compassion and strength of character in pursuing her own life on her terms. She lived by Ralph Waldo Emerson’s dictum; the whole adventure has been so very well “worth while.”

GWENETH WISEWOULD To my fellow medical practitioners: - To the very young doctors who know everything, To the very old doctors who know nothing, And all those in between who bear the burden of the health of a nation, For I have been all of them. I discovered all kinds of people at the end of my journey of ‘ecstasy’, so many years ago. It was ‘achievement’ indeed, for in accord with Ralph Waldo Emerson’s dictum, the whole adventure had been so very well ‘worthwhile’.
