Overview

On a hot September day in 1924, Jesus Lajun picked up a dead rat off his basement floor and tossed it into the trash. A few days later, he became deathly ill. Soon family members and other people in his neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, were coming down with the same illness. Within a month, they were all dead. Doctors who studied the blood of one victim were shocked by what they found. The cause of the sickness and death was plague-a disease that had wiped out millions of lives in Europe in the 1300s.

How did this killer disease reappear and start spreading again? Look inside to find out more about Jesus and other victims of plague. You'll also discover what causes the dangerous illness, how it affects the body, and-most important-how to protect yourself from it.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Annie Laura Smith
Deadly germs have caused worldwide epidemics for thousands of years. These plagues killed millions of people. Bearport Publishing uses first person accounts, maps, and dramatic photographs to show how six of these diseases have spread. This book covers the bubonic plague. A contents page shows the scope of the information which includes an historical look at the bubonic plague and treatment options. These evolved from bloodletting to antibiotics. A listing of "Other Famous Plague Pandemics" cites the years and locations of outbreaks of the past. "Bubonic Plague Facts" provide a definitive look at this plague: Plague Prevention; What to Do, and Tracking Plague Today. The language is age appropriate with a glossary defining the medical terms. Sections titled "Bibliography," "Read More," and "Learn More Online" provide options for further research. An index provides easy navigation through the text. The topics in the series take a singular approach to each disease, but contribute to the larger concept of deadly diseases. Statistics, scientific facts, and public health breakthroughs are presented for each contagious illness. This book is part of the Nightmare Plague series which also include: The Flu of 1918: Millions Dead Worldwide!; Malaria: Super Killer!; Smallpox: Is It Over?; Tuberculosis: The White Plague!; and Typhoid Fever: Dirty Food, Dirty Water!
