Speckled Monster: A Historical Tale of Battling Smallpox
Jennifer Lee Carroll (au)
History’s first desperate efforts to conquer the spotted beast of smallpox. The dramatic story of 2 parents who dared to fight back against the disease. After barely surviving the agony of smallpox themselves, they both flouted 18th-cent. Eur. med. tradition by borrowing folk knowledge from African slaves & Eastern women in frantic bids to protect their children. From their heroic struggles stems the modern science of immunology as well as the vaccinations should the disease ever be unleashed again. Carrell transports readers back to the early 20th-cent. to tell the tales of Lady Mary Wortley Montagu & Dr. Zabdiel Boylston: two iconoclastic figures who helped save the cities of London & Boston from the deadliest disease mankind has known. Illus.
