Lyme Disease: Trouble in Paradise
In July 2002, having spent an idyllic week's vacation on one of the Elizabeth Islands off Cape Cod, I came home to New Hampshire. The island -- a glorious, wild place marked by ancient beech forests, kettle ponds, and open grasslands -- is also crawling with ticks, which at the time seemed only a minor obstacle to enjoying the abundant gifts it offers.
