Riassunto: The amazing true story of one man's fight against a deadly disease. Eighteenth-century Doctor Edward Jenner saved millions of people from smallpox and other diseases by developing vaccination - and paved the way for future advances in medical science. The story starts dramatically, with Jenner deliberately infecting 8-year-old James Phipps first with cowpox and then with deadly smallpox. Will he survive? We follow Jenner's progress in the battle against smallpox, struggling against ignorance and prejudice as well as the killer virus itself. It includes a 4-page section of colour photos.
L'autore: Alan Brown is an established children's author. He is also active in community publishing and has had numerous poems and stories published in local magazines, performed on tape and broadcast on radio.
