From the mid-1950s through the end of the last century, I witnessed a dramatic change in the level of care and service patients received prior to arriving at the hospital.  The changes in this pre-Hospital or Emergency Medical Services care was often developed by volunteers, in small towns, and with very limited resources.  How did this improvement come about?  How did all these places of small population improve so much?  It was the search for answers to questions that gave rise to this book and is told through the voices of the people who were there at the times these changes occurred, in towns small and cities large.




A pearl forms when a speck of sand irritates the inside of an oyster.  The oyster responds by adding layers of secretions to the grain of sand, and therefore makes a pearl.  This book is that grain of sand.
