This early reader biography introduces the life of Florence Nightingale, a pioneer of women's nursing, including her childhood, training, work in the Crimean War, and her school for nurses.
"A biography of the 19th-century British woman who helped make nursing an important profession. In her time, this was a job done by untrained, lower-class women. Over time, in spite of the disapproval of her upper-class family, she studied, visited, and researched hospitals and nursing schools, and became famous as a nurse during Britain's Crimean War in 1854." -- School Library Journal
"The engaging text is written in a lively style without resorting to fictionalized dialogue." -- School Library Journal
