|With sensitive observation and graceful prose, this compelling memoir of a 23-year-old doctor traveling throughout western rural communities reveals the emotional complexity of treating patients when their lives hang in the balance.|
From the Publisher:
Do sleek high-tech hospitals teach more about medicine and less about humanity? Do doctors ever lose their tolerance for suffering? With sensitive observation and graceful prose, this book explores some of the difficult and deeply personal questions a 23-year-old doctor confronts with her very first dying patient, and continues to struggle with as she strives to become a good doctor. In her travels, the doctor attends to terminal illness, AIDS, tuberculosis, and premature birth in small rural communities throughout the world.
