HP Newquist takes young readers on an engaging tour of the world of blood, from
ancient history to modern sciencewith an occasional trip to the very strange side of
the most important tissue in our bodies. Oddly enough, scientists began to understand
this fascinating fluid only within the past one hundred years and how its microscopic
components nourish the entire body.
Whether the tales of vampires, medieval medical practices, and Mayan sacrificial
rites captivate or terrify, this comprehensive investigation into bloods past and present
will surely enthrall. And if this account is a little bloodcurdling, well, thats half the
fun!
