An illustrated biography of Florence Nightingale, who helped to change the nature of nursing in the nineteenth century.

"As a child of wealth and privilege, Florence Nightingale always longed to do more for those less fortunate. She found her chance to help others when England went to war against Russian in the Crimean War. Florence led a group of nurses to care for the wounded soldiers. At that time, military hospitals were dirty and the wounded soldiers given little care. With her nurses, and through the use of her private money, she created cleaner conditions and provided the soldiers with personal care and attention. Back in England, she continued to campaign for better conditions in hospitals and in 1860, opened a school for nurses. With more than 60 years of service, she helped to make nursing an honorable profession, left behind safer, cleaner hospitals, and saved countless lives."
