sorry but this book is out of stock. Please check back soon.

Don’t Look Down is a memoir by Robert Chisholm. The author recounts all of his adventures of Ski-mountaineering in the Austrian Alps with only one working limb, or Sailing above the Arctic Circle and west of Greenland. Walking around Annapurna, and working as a doctor in India, and exploring the tribal region of north Pakistan.

These are only some of the things consultant radiologist Roger Chisholm did after receiving a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis when he was 27. Despite the diagnosis, this is a life-affirming story of enduring friendships, quiet courage and resilience. Above all, it is a story of a man determined to defy the odds and live life to the full.
