Item description

The American Plague: The Untold Story of Yellow Fever, The Epidemic That Shaped Our History Signed by Author, Molly Caldwell Crosby Author: Molly Caldwell Crosby ISBN: 0-425-21202-5 Publisher: The Berkely Publishing Group - Published by the Penquin Group First Edition: November 2006 Style: Hardcover Brand new; never read. This nonfiction book tells the story of yellow fever, the disease caused by mosquitoes, and about how it was brought from West Africa to the United States and the many deaths it caused in Memphis, Tennessee. Hampton Sides, author of Ghost Soldiers and Blood and Thunder, wrote: "As a native of Memphis--a river town nearly obliterated by this terrifying disease--I've always felt yellow fever's long shadow. Not until I read Crosby's 'The American Plague,' however, did I realize its curious integral place in our national experience. Through vivid prose and classic storytelling, Crosby seamlessly blends history and science to tell us how yellow fever haunted the nation--and why, if we're not extremely vigilant, it will haunt us again." "The American Plague" is Molly Crosby's first book, though her writings have appeared in Newsweek, Health, and USA Today, among others. She holds a graduate degree in nonfiction writing from Johns Hopkins University. All of my items are clean and come from a smoke-free, pet-hair-free home. Shipping will be Media Mail.
