The Medicine Man's Daughter 

  Request this author
The Medicine Man's Daughter, by Carolyn Noell, is a coming-of-age account of a Liberian refugee who came to Charlotte to escape civil war. With little schooling, Dayou Tucker was placed in sixth grade and began to work on the challenge of catching up academically, adjusting to a new culture and dealing with hepatitis, which she brought with her from Africa. Her parents had used country medicine, like the second skin of a tree, to try to heal her. After moving to the United States, Dayou experienced modern medicine and a liver transplant with a team of healthcare professionals from Carolinas Medical Center. She demonstrated great courage as her small, multi-cultural church found a deep sense of community as they rallied around her.
