The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down: A Hmong Child, Her American Doctors, and the Collision of Two Cultures

The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down: A Hmong Child, Her American Doctors, and the Collision of Two Cultures - Anne Fadiman Amazing. Truly a wonderful book.

This should be required reading for anthropology students who are intending to do ethnography. The author walks a perfect balance between telling two sides of a complex and heartbreaking story.

The final chapter made me cry real tears. It was very intense and sad, but happy at the same time.

You need to read this book.
