Flashback to Peace Corps. Each of us was given a copy of David Werner's book, "Where there is no doctor". I'm looking for copies to give my teenagers for when they leave the home. It was basic good sense, and I learned things I still rely on today. From today's wikipedia:
Where There Is No Doctor: A village health care handbook is the most widely used health education book in tropical and sub-tropical developing countries. Based on David Werner's experiences at his Project Piaxtla in western Mexico, it was originally written in 1970 in Spanish as Donde No Hay Doctor. It has since been revised multiple times, has sold over one million copies and been translated into over 100 languages. The book is available for purchase, in either book form or on CD, at Hesperian's bookstore. Because the non-profit publisher's mission is making health information readily accessible to everyone, portions can also be download free-of-charge in pdf format.
