Within a single week in September of 1854, around 600 people died from a cholera outbreak that began with the use of a single water pump. The effects were devastating, and even today cholera occurs throughout the globe because of tainted water supplies. This thrilling narrative explores the history of the disease, the steps taken to cure its victims, and how cholera epidemics have shaped society.
