Don't Look Down

An Adventurous Life with MS

By Roger Chisholm

Format: Hardback

Fighting a gale at night on an unfamiliar lee shore with half his sea-sickened crew below didn't put Roger Chisholm off sailing. But then having only one limb of four working properly did not put him off climbing, while an attack from a malignant brain tumor, simply spurred him to write.

Scotland Street Press

The Press was set up to publish "ANT". After 8 years research on Chasing Lost Time, the Life of C. K. Scott Moncrieff, Soldier, Spy, Translator,( published by Chatto and Windus and Vintage here in the UK and by Farrar Straus and Giroux in the US), Jean Findlay, the author, was left with masses of material. The creative works of C. K. Scott Moncrieff had never been collected and here they all were waiting to go to press. Being naturally impatient, she decided, like the Little Red Hen, to do it herself. Hence the birth of Scotland Street Press. The Press will go on to publish literary fiction, memoir and travel in book form.

Product Description

Details

Ski-mountaineering in the Austrian Alps with only one working limb. Sailing above the Arctic Circle and west of Greenland. Walking around Annapurna. Working as a doctor in India. Exploring the tribal region on north Pakistan.

These are only some of the things consultant radiologist Roger Chisholm has done after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, aged 27.

This is a life-affirming story of enduring friendships, quite courage and resilience. Above all, it is a story of a man determined to defy the odds and live life to the full.
