Tilburg is an emergency room physician, ski patrol doctor, emergency wilderness physician, and member of the Hood River Crag Rats, the oldest mountain rescue team in the country. When his beeper goes off, the call may take him racing up a mountain peak to rescue an injured hiker, into a blizzard to search for missing skiers, or to a mountain airplane crash scene for body recovery.
Dr. Van Tilburg's work requires a unique combination of emergency medicine, survival skills, agility, and extreme sports. He shares personal stories of harrowing and suspenseful rescues and recoveries, including the 2006 Mount Hood disaster, which claimed the lives of three climbers. This is an exhilarating tour through the perils of nature and medicine.
