Book Review of The American Plague: The Untold Story of Yellow Fever, the Epidemic that Shaped Our History

reviewed on
Helpful Score: 2

This book is a great read. Molly Caldwell Crosby kept this from becoming a purely scientific book that was way over my head. I found it truly fascinating and easy to follow, never boring and making this epidemic so personal. She puts faces to the victims and scientists/doctors who studied this disease. I learned so much about our history and the brave men who put an end to a terrible disease.
