Revue de presse
"Young is a gifted writer, and her prose is mesmerizing. She perfectly balances the details of breathtaking countryside with harsh medical realities to weave stories that capture one’s imagination and draw us fully in." —Journal of the American Medical
Présentation de l'éditeur
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.

If you're in the medical profession you'll love ths one. Or if you don't, re-read it and think about it...

Excellent for medical students and young doctors - a must-have for those new in the profession as well as for older medical folks who forget to listen to their patients...
It pulled me in...gradually, :-)

Interesting read. I am in the nursing field but haven't had the opportunity to work in the hospital (only homecare nursing which is a different ballgame and a different kind of stress). But I definitely learned a lot from this author, based on her experiences. An understanding and non-judgmental attitude is better received from others than a cold demeanor.

I really enjoyed reading this book! I am a freshman in college and I am taking my pre-med courses so I have read a few books like this one! The author shares about her time in a rural medicine program located in Washington, Alaska, and many other desolate locations. She shares with us her struggle to help those she cares for while trying to deal with limited resources and funding. This would be a great read for anyone interested in a career in rural medicine!

Starts slow, but picks up steam

The first chapter is the least interesting portion of the book, but once I got into the second chapter I didn't stop til I finished. The writing is very clear. Young is descriptive but not superfluous with her language, and overall this work offers great insight into the rural rotations offered at UWSOM.
very good book

it starts a little slowly but just gets better and better. It shows clearly her growth as a human and as a doctor. She grows into a person with humanity and with great care and understanding of her fellow man/woman. Would that all doctors could be this way. By the end of the book I was enthralled with this lady.
