Reply to "What are you reading?"

“Fourth Uncle in the Mountain: A Memoir of a Barefoot Doctor in Vietnam” by Marjorie Pivar & Quang Van Nguyen.  Interesting book. Somebody online in a thread on one of the forum I frequent recommended this book so I tossed it on my to-read shelf on a whim.  This book is completely outside my normal reading zone. Vietnam culture from French Colonial times to roughly a decade after the end of the Vietnam War.  All from the viewpoint of citizens, mostly traditional Vietnamese doctors, monks and spiritual people. Traditional Chinese medicine, meditation towards enlightenment, a real mixed bag.  I found it refreshing and a quick way to reset myself from my normal reading themes. I enjoyed it.
