Author Gary Ludwig was an innocent eighteen-year-old kid when he began his first job with the City of St. Louis in 1977. With his newbie status, he was assigned to work on an ambulance on the city's north side. Ludwig's first call involved a woman in labor. He didn't have medical training or an EMT license and certainly no experience delivering babies. That first call started an incredible journey where Ludwig witnessed things he'll never forget and saw others he wishes he hadn't. In Blood, Sweat, Tears, and Prayers, he tells of working thirty-four years of his thirty-seven-year-career in two of the toughest cities in the United States-St. Louis and Memphis. He crossed paths with presidents, a pope, people who became his friends, and many he'd met at the worst time of their life. Ludwig tells the heart-wrenching stories of dealing with death and tragedy but also the celebration of a life saved. He shares the emotions, the laughs, and the tears that come with being a firefighter and a paramedic.
