America's First Trained Nurse: a Review 14 Feb 2007
By Susan Turale - Published on Amazon.com
For anyone interested in the pioneers of nursing history this book is a must read. It poignantly captures the hard life of nursing in its early days but this is clearly overshadowed by the optimism, tenacity and intelligence of Linda King. She was America's first trained nurse, was the leading teacher of the first graduates of nursing in Japan and an innovator in nursing education and administration. As an academic and nurse it is a priviledge for me to know more about this woman through her writings, and it is wonderful to know that the book has been reproduced for future generations.

A fascinating glimpse into nursing history 14 Mar 2007
By Scribe - Published on Amazon.com
This is a fascinating glimpse into nursing history and this is not a vanity press item as the previous reviewer claims - this is a FAMOUS book by Linda Richards, who was a great American pioneer for nursing and also for women - that has been published several times over the years by a number of differant publishers since the early 1900s!!!

The fact that this is larger print with wider margins than the norm is a plus and not a negative for me as it makes it easier to read. At US9.99 for this genre it is hardly overpriced either...many other nursing history books that are far smaller cost a lot more.

Interesting but overpriced 5 Mar 2007
By Readz Alot - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The content of the book was mostly quite interesting, if a bit shallow. However, the print was large, there were wide spaces between the lines ... and I read the thing from cover to cover in less than an hour. Might to better to peruse this one from the library (if you can find a library that carries it -- it is a vanity press item) than to pay for it.
