a better way



It is not very often I have to look up a medical term but trachoma from The Endless Steppe threw me.  So I looked it up to discover a very contagious disease of the eye, sparing the details, ends in painful blindness.  When I explained it to Boo she asked, "Is that real?"  I told her yes it was and reminded her that everything in the book was said to be based in fact. 

"But Mom, I don't want any of it to be real."

This is why we study our past...
