Review: The Black Death

User Review  - Amy Durreson - Goodreads

An invaluable desktop reference book. :D If you're writing a novel about the Black Death, that is. This is an excellent compendium of primary sources from the Black Death in Europe. Clearly organised and with useful introductions to each of the three sections. Read full review

Review: The Black Death

User Review  - Natalie - Goodreads

It was like reading a lot of documents. Some were very interesting. Some were very boring. All in all it was not a waste of time for the view of the time. When I read anything else about the time period I'll have that in the background for context. Read full review
