When it comes to connections, nothing does it better than … blood. Silently and unseen it relentlessly performs its tasks within our body. But it doesn’t stop there, blood is identified with other functions that stretch into community, heritage and even further into very surprising places.
This small book explores these places and will take you on a fascinating journey from blood groups to blood-lines, by way of DNA, curses, clots, circumcision and the circulatory system and the various ways that blood can be lost, from murder and vampires and the world of leeches to the blood sacrifice. Bringing it all together though, on so many levels, is the connective power of blood, the River of Life.
