The plague, aptly known as the Black Death, swept through Europe in the 1300s, killing more than 20 million people. This book, an asset to any social studies collection, provides details about the plague, examines where the lethal outbreak originated, and addresses whether it could return. Aided by striking illustrations, sidebars, and fact boxes, readers will discover the conditions in the Middle Ages that made it possible for such an appalling disease to spread so easily.
