Poop Happened: A History of the World from the Bottom Up

by Sarah Albee

Aimed at kids 8 and up, Poop Happened examines how societies from ancient times to present day have had to confront the vexing problem of what to do with their waste. Readers will discover that the improper disposal of human waste has led to very bad consequences, namely, wars, disease, insect trouble, plagues, high infant mortality, heavy alcohol consumption, shortened stature, shortened life spans, cave-ins, explosions, asphyxiation, peasant revolts, and collapsed empires. To say nothing of extremely smelly city streets.
