  • Heart and Soul: The Story of Florence Nightingale By Gena K. Gorrell In Florence Nightingale s day, if a person was sick and lucky he or she was nursed at home with caring family members tending the bedside Hospitals were horrible places from which few emerged alive The nurses were often drunks and prostitutes Doctors had rudimentary skills.Thus the privileged Nightingale family was appalled when Florence, who had done her share of hIn Florence Nightingale s day, if a person was sick and lucky he or she was nursed at home with caring family members tending the bedside Hospitals were horrible places from which few emerged alive The nurses were often drunks and prostitutes Doctors had rudimentary skills.Thus the privileged Nightingale family was appalled when Florence, who had done her share of household nursing, announced that she wanted to train to work in a hospital After all, her role was cut out for her she was to be a decorative, witty lady A career, much less nursing, was out of the question.It took many years, but Florence found her calling in Crimea More English soldiers died of sickness there than died in battle If they were wounded they were almost sure to suffer in misery, lying on pallets caked with old blood, hungry and thirsty, without anyone to offer them so much as a sip of water Florence caused a revolution in her insistence for cleanliness, wholesome food, and kind treatment of men, who were considered to be nothing than cannon fodder.Florence s campaign resulted in reforms to health care for millions of people Although she was in frail health for much of her life, her sense of outrage and her extraordinary stamina in the face of prejudice and almost criminal ignorance make her story one of the most inspiring in history.Dozens of photographs, posters, and cartoons bring the past to life in this memorable biography.From the Hardcover edition.

    I would suggest Nightingale Power as an alternate title for this biography of Crimean War nurse and all round healthcare reformer Florence Nightingale, after a phrase that Crimean veterans reportedly used to discuss her particular characteristic attribute according to Chapter 6 And I offer to Nightingale s memory my apologies for the fact that until reading this volume the true scope and extent of her experience, work, expertise and influence was scarcely known to me.Just occasionally the tone a [...]

    Lincoln and I have been getting into the life of Florence Nightingale over the past month or so It started out from watching an animated hero classic DVD about her so then we checked out a bunch of children s books to learn Then I decided to read a little in depth on my own I liked the succinctness of this book 143 pages while at the same time it seemed to cover everything I was interested in learning about this great heroine I also appreciated that this book did not try to glamorize her too m [...]

    The most complete children s biography that I have read thus far on Florence Nightingale Very enlightening and would be better suited in the teen biography section and for high school age students Probably information than most elementary students would want for research or a mini biography report Florence Nightingale was a determined individual who lived in a time when women were considered psychologically unfit for higher educations, and that too much brainpower would divert energy from the w [...]

    Heart and Soul The Story of Florence Nightingale is a fairly long but nuanced biography We read it aloud for school and I found it a little long, but the kids liked it The book does a good job of balancing between the popular ideal of Florence Nightingale the angel with the lamp, etc and the reality that as a person Nightingale was critical and demanding and self absorbed We had some interesting talks about this, with the kids speculating about whether or not Nightingale would have gotten as muc [...]

    Excellent biography of the famous English social reformer and aristocrat Almost single handedly, she upgraded medical care for ordinary soldiers from a degrading painful and usually fatal crucible, to a situation where soldiers were decently treated and had a reasonable chance of recovery.

    I loved learning about Florence Nightingale and the author Gena K Gorrell gives background into the times and societal behaviors to give the reader a look into life in those times.

    I need to make a biography of illustrated historical fiction books or prose books for and about nurses
