“This vampire thrived in the warm southern climate. It lurked on the ground outside rural homes, schools, and churches. Invisible to its potential victims, it waited until one of them passed by. Undetected, it hitched a ride, burrowed in through the skin, and tricked the person’s body into allowing it to stay. The intruder hid deep in the host’s gut for years, anchored in place by sharp fang-like mouthparts.”
Never have I been so glad for not living in the South during the 1800-1900’s, because that’s where vampires lurked about. Yes, vampires. They sucked your blood and made you sick and tired. And for a long time no one knew why.
Until there came along scientists such as Charles Wardell Stiles who wanted to figure out what was making these people sick. The answer? Well you are just going to have to pick up a copy and see for yourself!
Perfect for curious minds ages 10 and up.
