"In the Arms of a Stranger" is Dale J Bingham's touching and moving account of his career as a paramedic. From his early years as a medic in Southern California, to his work as a Tulsa, Oklahoma paramedic, he gives an inside look at the rewards, the trials, and the heartaches that emergency workers face everyday. In between, he writes of his own struggles with a difficult career and of tragically losing his own mother to the very part of life he worked so hard to conquer. "In the Arms of a Stranger" will tug at the heartstrings of the reader and leave the reader with a greater appreciation for those emergency workers who struggle everyday to help those in need.

I didn't read the entire book but I too shared the life on the streets of So Central LA while working at Adams Ambulance from 8/1985 to 12/1988. The stories brought back some vividly good and bad memories. Thanks Dale for taking me back to my early adult life.
