An American Plague - The True and Terrifying Story of the Yellow Fever Epidemic of 1793

R$46,29

Descrição

1793, Philadelphia. The nation'apos;s capital and the largest city in North America is devastated by an apparently incurable disease, cause unknown . . .In a powerful, dramatic narrative, critically acclaimed author Jim Murphy describes the illness known as yellow fever and the toll it took on the city'apos;s residents, relating the epidemic to the major social and political events of the day and to 18th-century medical beliefs and practices. Drawing on first-hand accounts, Murphy spotlights the heroic role of Philadelphia'apos;s free blacks in combating the disease, and the Constitutional crisis that President Washington faced when he was forced to leave the city--and all his papers--while escaping the deadly contagion. The search for the fever'apos;s causes and cure, not found for more than a century afterward, provides a suspenseful counterpoint to this riveting true story of a city under siege.

An American Plague'apos;s numerous awards include a Sibert Medal, a Newbery Honor, and designation as a National Book Award Finalist. Thoroughly researched, generously illustrated with fascinating archival prints, and unflinching in its discussion of medical details, this book offers a glimpse into the conditions of American cities at the time of our nation'apos;s birth while drawing timely parallels to modern-day epidemics. Bibliography, map, index.
