Typhoid fever is a disease that has touched American history since it was brought to the continent by the Spanish in the fifteen century. This book explores where this disease has had a far-reaching impact, including in the Jamestown settlement, during the American Civil War, and in industrialized Chicago and New York City. This is a fascinating book that examines both the scientific and human side of the disease.
