Like an old friend
This book is one of the most captivating I've ever read. After having read and reread it, as well as other family members, I have had to obtain a new copy. The original has begun to fall apart. This book and the characters within have become old friends that I like to visit -especially on a bad day. They have told me of their stories time and again and I will never become tired of them.

An all-time favorite
Even better than the first in the series (The Physician), Shaman provides a well-researched picture of medicine in the US before and during the Civil War, woven into a highly engaging tale. The characters are - as one reviewer said - "like old friends." This is one you'll be going back to again and again to reread favorite sections. You'll also learn a lot about other major movements and issues in the same time period, and you can trust Noah Gordon to give you a balanced perspective.Was this review helpful?

Shaman Chai revisited?
This is a great medical book which I found fascinating. It reminded me of 'Shaman Chai written by Jay Werba' (a Bangkok based book). However, I'd put this book way above that one. Why? Well, for one Jay Werba never deals with the sarcasm that is ailing him while this book provides some real healing points.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
