Blood runs red through all of us and carries the same life-giving energy to every human being. We’ve learned a lot about the science of blood, but it is as complex and mysterious as ever. Culturally, blood has a mystique all its own, and what it stands for – tribe, family, race, gender – has divided us since the beginning of time.
Blood pulses through our religions, through literature and the visual arts, and every time it pools or spills, we learn a little more about what brings human beings together and what divides us.
Renowned author Lawrence Hill takes us on a fascinating journey through the story of blood. Check out what the Globe and Mail had to say about Blood: The Stuff of Life
