View all copies of this ISBN edition:

While the name of “The Angel of the Crimea” is a household word, the precise nature and scope of her work, and the difficulties and discouragement under which it was accomplished, are unknown to many children of the present generation. All this is here beautifully and completely related by a famous writer whose own father was in part responsible for confirming Miss Nightingale in her determination to devote her life to nursing.

“Written in a simple, pleasing way and will interest children...Florence Nightingale’s work during the Crimean War was wonderful, but her influence and the work she has been enabled to do confined to her room are even more so. To her we are indebted for the first training school for nurses, which has revolutionized the treatment of the sick.” -New-York Observer

"It may seem a strange principle to enunciate as the very first requirement in a hospital that it should do the sick no harm."

Originally published in 1909, this is the inspiring story of Florence Nightingale (1820–1910), the founder of the modern nursing profession. British soldiers who were wounded in the Crimean War (the 1853–56 war between Russia and an alliance of Great Britain, France, Sardinia, and Turkey) called her "The Lady with the Lamp" when she walked the halls of their hospital at night. Facing unspeakable filth and disorganization, she and her staff of nurses cared for thousands of sick and wounded soldiers, earning their undying gratitude. Suitable for ages 11 and up.
