Description
 
“La moria grandissima” (”the great mortality”) began its terrible journey across the European & Asian continents in 1347, leaving unimaginable devastation in its wake. Five years later, 25 million people were dead, felled by the scourge that would come to be called the Black Death. This is the extraordinary epic account of the worst natural disaster in European history -- a drama of courage, cowardice, misery, madness, & sacrifice that brilliantly illuminates humankind’s darkest days when an old world ended & a new world was born. The book includes alarming firsthand witness accounts & conveys a powerful sense of just how terribly Europe suffered from the plague. “Kelly is a master storyteller who offers a work of brilliance & wisdom.” Illustrations.
