Annotation: This remarkable woman's inspirational account traces her life from a Navajo reservation to Dartmouth College, to medical school at Stanford, and finally to her return to her people as a surgeon. Combining state of the art medical treatment with the traditional healing wisdom of her tribe, Dr. Alovrd shows how a doctor's rapport with her patients is as important as her technical skills.
