1793, Philadelphia. The nation's capital and the largest city in North America is devastated by an apparently incurable disease, cause unknown . . . In a powerful, dramatic narrative, critically acclaimed author Jim Murphy describes the illness known as yellow fever and the toll it took on the city's residents, relating the epidemic to the major social and political events of the day and to 18th-century medical beliefs and practices. Drawing on first-hand accounts, Murphy spotlights the heroic role of Philadelphia's free blacks in combating the disease, and the Constitutional crisis that President Washington faced when he was forced to leave the city--and all his papers--while escaping the deadly contagion. The search for the fever's causes and cure, not found for more than a century afterward, provides a suspenseful counterpoint to this riveting true story of a city under siege. Thoroughly researched, generously illustrated with fascinating archival prints, and unflinching in its discussion of medical details, this book offers a glimpse into the conditions of American cities at the time of our nation's birth while drawing timely parallels to modern-day epidemics.

Hansa Black Kid Sheep 12" Hansa Toys USA: Heirloom Quality Plush HANSA features 12 distinctively realistic Collections: Arctic, Aviary, Bears, Cats & Dogs, Down Under, Farm Animals, Monkeys, Safari, Woodland & Prairie, Fantasy Collection, the new Endangered & Extinct Series and Mechanicals. HANSA is famous for their unique and close-to-nature reproductions of the world's best loved animals. HANSA animals are handcrafted by artists, in "green oriented" studios.The HANSA Story What makes Hansa Toys different from their competitors is the quality and pin point accuracy of specific animal characteristics that are used in each production: Artists create each Hansa animal from portraits of the creature in its natural habitat. Most fabrics are custom designed and exclusively manufactured to HANSA'S exacting specifications. The animal's "coats" are meticulously hand-cut and trimmed, never stamped out by machine. The animals are hand sewn "inside out", resulting in the minimization of seams. This development of an exceptional internal stitching method allows the Hansa artisans create effects like muscle tone and "features" unique to each creature. On average, there are 42 separate pieces required to make each animal. (Some animals have as many as 240 different parts!) The subtle coloring on the animals is hand painted or airbrushed by specially trained Hansa artisans. Each animal is hand finished with loving detail to give them the life like look yet sweet face and cuddly feel that is unmistakably HANSA."Toys that Teach" HANSA's goal is to help educate children and adults alike about the natural lives of these magnificent creatures; to understnad, respect and appreciate the importance of our co-existance with all animals. Each animal comes with a "Toys that Teach" tag describing in detail the animal's history, habitat, lifestyle, gestation period, care of their young and eating habits.
