Reviews
The Black Death

“Black Death, the most gruesome in the series, tracks plague routes and the pestilences’s effect on European culture and history. Eyewitness accounts, tales of flagellants (people who believed that self-inflicted wounds would evoke repentance and save them from the plague), and photographs of black, rotting fingertips will fascinate kids interested in the macabre.” -SLJ, 08/14
