Description - Stranger in the Village of the Sick by Paul Stoller

After more than fifty years as the model of perfect health, anthropologist Paul Stoller suddenly finds himself diagnosed with lymphoma. The only thing more transformative than his fear of cancer is the place it ultimately takes him - twenty-five years back in time to his days as an apprentice to a West African sorcerer. This book follows Stoller down this unexpected path toward personal growth, and healing. Drawing upon an ancient tradition, he explores the symbiotic relationship between illness and health and the differences in how disease is culturally perceived.
