    During Medieval times, medical practice included bloodletting, leeching, and sometimes sawing off a hand or foot! From rat catchers to dung farmers, people have held horrible jobs throughout history. Readers will be engrossed--and grossed out--by truly awful occupations from eras common in the social studies curriculum. The main content will include the historical context of each piteous profession, while sidebars and colorful images will engage readers with dirty details of life in the past.

    • Content adds great grisly information to common topics in the social studies curriculum
    • Colorful, fun illustrations enhance the main text
    • Detailed sidebars give descriptive examples of gross and weird jobs from each book's historical period
