Father's Prairie

Father’s Prairie

Francis Ko

Father’s Prairie takes you to the world where modern medicine meets with traditional Tibetan medicine (TTM). Through the lenses of a young daughter of a rural M.D. father, Qinghai province delivers heaven-like picturesque sceneries and the equally, if not more superb cultural treasures in spiritual and medical realms.  Would thousands of years of TTM wisdom take effect to her father’s venous thrombosis condition? What would the prairie visit mean for the young daughter, also a young doctor herself?
