Inspired by his Cherokee grandmother's healing ceremonies, Lewis Mehl-Madrona's Coyote Medicine, enlightens readers about paths to recovery and health through narrative medicine.

With the story of one doctor's remarkable initiation into alternative spiritual and physical healing, Coyote Medicine provides a key to untapped healing methods available today to empower and transform lives.
