A lively history of the world from the point of view of pandemics that have wreaked havoc, killed billions, challenged science, and changed everything as people recovered. A look back at how our ancestors coped with what we are living today! Everyone reading this book is alive because their ancestors survived.
Millions cross oceans as stowaways, thousands hitchhike on truck trailers, untold numbers curl up in airplane landing gear, or sneak into the folds of luggage. Some even swagger across borders in broad daylight, their passage enabled by careless humans. Read about invasive species that have moved in and taken over existing eco-systems, bringing destruction, disease, and chaos.
