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