The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down
by Anne Fadiman

This book symbolizes the importance of a cross-cultural perspective for understanding healthcare practices. It illustrates the relationship between traditional medicine and modern, western medicine. My friend, Pat Bush, a farmer and herbalist herself, introduced me to this book knowing of my love and interest in medical anthropology, agriculture and the environment.
