Elgin and Osterritter
Another helpful period book. My first thought was that movie about a virus called 28 Days Later. Coincidence?
I am embarrassed for the library that still has it on the shelves (at least as of this writing). I pity a girl that has to depend on this old book. The illustrations are bizarre. (I thought the first picture was of sunglasses. Whoops!) As a woman of a certain age, I can also say that I have never heard of any of the “modern” myths. In 1973, I was busy being a boring junior high student in the middle of Illinois– hardly on the cutting edge of popular culture. I think avoiding wet feet and chills is probably good advice regardless of how your lady parts are acting.
I am also pretty sure my younger self would have thought this was a waste of a good tree.
