Description


This is the history both of Tuberculosis in Minnesota and of the Glen Lake Sanitorium, where, in the first half of the twentieth century, so many TB patients were housed as they fought their illness.  Treatment methods changed over time, success with recovery varied, and Krugerud examines all of it, offering the often stark reality of this terrible disease, and the heart-warming stories of people suffering from it and those who sought to cure them.
