How They Croaked: The Awful Ends of the Awfully Famous by Georgia Bragg

How They Croaked
Over the course of history men and women have lived and died. In fact, getting sick and dying can be a big, ugly mess-especially before the modern medical care that we all enjoy today. How They Croaked relays all the gory details of how nineteen world figures gave up the ghost including King Tut, Christopher Columbus, Pocahontas, George Washington and Albert Einstein. Readers will be fascinated well past the final curtain, and feel lucky to live in a world with painkillers, X-rays, soap, and 911.
