Color & Control:

A Wilder Life

By Joan Louwrens

When her husband died, leaving her alone with two small daughters, Joan Louwrens threw herself into “adventure medicine”, seeking out remote corners—on land and at sea—to practise healing, both her own and others. Working in wild places from Kruger Park to the Australian Outback, the Atlantic Ocean islands, and both the Arctic and Antarctic, “Doctor Joan” shares her experiences with everything from rabies to deep-vein thrombosis, childbirth to wisdom-tooth extraction, and catatonia to depression.
