THE BOOK IS THE BEST, BARNES AND NOBLES LEFT OUT THE CO-AUTHOR'S NAME, WHY?
Here at last, the Age of Faith meets the Age of Google. With the Internet as its medium, Curandero Conversations blurs what was once the traditional boundary between medicine, religion, and culture, demonstrating that we need all three to heal our bodies and souls.
