A Walk Along the River II picks up where the first volume left off, presenting the remaining chapters in the collection of case studies from the practice of Yu Guo-Jun and his teacher, Jiang Er-Xun. Twenty-two additional case studies are presented including disorders of the qi, blood, and body fluids; generalized disorders; gynecology and obstetrics; and pediatrics. There is also a personal essay by the author that traces his path in the study and practice of traditional Chinese medicine, and a bonus case study that explores time and space in Chinese medical therapeutics.
