This book comprises the results of forty years' active work in the South and personal experience in passing through several epidemics of yellow fever. It is pleasantly written, and many of us will notice with pleasure the frequent reference to names of well-known epidemiologists. The anecdotes in the book are well told, and whether or not one agrees with the optimistic views of the writer in regard to the prevention and ultimate extinction of the disease, he will at least derive pleasure from a perusal of the book.
