The main goal of this paper was to reconstruct the process of constructing the identity of a mountain rescuer. The author was interested in capturing its course and finding the factors that might have some influence on it. In the first part, the theoretical and methodological context of a research, that was the base of the paper, would be presented, including the presentation of grounded theory as a research strategy that was used. Main aspects of the process - with its main stages, dimensions and subprocesses would be described in details in the empirical chapter.
