The Boston smallpox epidemic of 1721 was the turning point in the eradication of history's deadliest disease. It was also the catalyst for the coming-of-age of Benjamin Franklin and the beginning of American independence. It was a year that changed the course of medical history, American journalism, and colonial revolution.

In The Fever of 1721, we meet Cotton Mather, Zabdiel Boylston, James Franklin and his younger brother Benjamin, and Elisha Cooke, who became the political mentor, model, and lodestar to Samuel Adams and the patriots. Coss brings these remarkable stories and the major actors together for the first time.
