In March 1900, San Francisco’s health department investigated a strange and horrible death in Chinatown. A man had died of bubonic plague, one of the world’s deadliest diseases. But how could that be possible? Bubonic Panic tells the true story of America’s first plague epidemic—the public health doctors who desperately fought to end it, the political leaders who tried to keep it hidden, and the brave scientists who uncovered the plague’s secrets. Once again, acclaimed author and scientific expert Gail Jarrow brings the history of a medical mystery to life in vivid and exciting detail for young readers. This title includes photographs and drawings, a glossary, a timeline, further resources, an author’s note, a bibliography, and source notes.

Bubonic Panic was a book that contained a good quantity of details that are understandable and that raise awareness of the Bubonic Plague. I enjoyed the way the author set the tone and how he inputed different pieces of information and quotes that were relevant to the situation. Finally, I would say this book is great for those who love the study of medicine but more precisely the study of different disorders.
