    An often heartbreaking look at the world’s first epidemic caused by climate change.

    Lyme disease is spreading rapidly around the globe as ticks move into areas where it was once too cold for them to live. Mary Beth Pfeiffer argues it is the first epidemic to emerge in the era of climate change, infecting millions around the globe. She tells the heart-rending stories of its victims, families whose lives have been destroyed by a single, often unseen, tick bite. Pfeiffer also warns of the emergence of other tick-borne illnesses that make Lyme more difficult to treat and pose their own grave risks.

    Lyme is an impeccably researched account of an enigmatic disease, making a powerful case for action to fight ticks, heal patients, and recognise humanity’s role in a modern scourge.
