Master storyteller Rosemary Wells tells the incredible, true story of a World War I nurse who brought medical care to the Appalachians. Mary Breckinridge, trained as a nurse during World War I, rode on horseback into the isolated mountains of Appalachia and never looked back. Instead, she spent her life fording icy streams and climbing untracked mountains to bring medical help to those in need. When more nurses on horseback joined Mary, the Frontier Nursing Service was born. Mary’s story is amazing. And it is true. 64 pages, softcover. Ages 8 to 12.
