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

I thought this book was extraordinary (sp).
You learn about Lia Lee (the child with epilepsy)and also about the Hmong society.
This book is heart-wrenching,there are many sad moments.

 

I read this first early in 2013 and think it's a very good book as a person with epilepsy(and a fondness for history of all cultures ) I would suggest this book to anyone.
