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.
‘A moving story of courage and friendship.’
‘This boy knows that he’s found something he’s always going to love: holding onto a rope, and starting out on an adventure.’
