Quotes 2017 #116

"My 'healing knowledge' derived from three years' experience, while in college, working for tuition money as an attendant at the University of Virginia hospital, and three more years, during graduate school, on an ambulance crew in Madison, Wisconsin. I carried with me, in Mueda, an Emergency Medical Technician's jump kit and a copy of WHERE THERE IS NO DOCTOR (Werner, Thuman, and Maxwell 1992), and I treated those who came to me so long as I was competent to do so."

Harry G. West, Ethnographic Sorcery.
