In 1923, there were no doctors or hospitals in the isolated mountains of Appalachia. Then Mary Breckinridge came. Trained as a nurse, she made the Appalachians her life's work-fording icy streams and climbing untracked mountains to bring medical help to those in need. These three stories, told in simple, luminous prose, bring to life the birth of the Frontier Nursing Service, which still operates in Kentucky. Mary On Horseback shows yet another side of Rosemary Wells-one of today's most versatile authors."These beautifully written stories will remain with the reader long after the book is closed." - Booklist, starred review"A compelling little book that might well cause some children of this overabundant age to consider their blessings...." -The Horn Book, starred reviewAwards:( Winner of the Christopher Award( A Horn Book Fanfare Book( A School Library Journal Best Book of the Year( A Smithsonian Notable Book for Children biographies,children's books,friendship social skills and school life,girls and women,growing up and facts of life,health,historical,history,inventions and inventors,literature and fiction Biographies, Perfection Learning

In 1923, Mary Breckinridge (who had been a nurse in WWI) learned about the nonexistent medical facilities in Appalachian Kentucky, and founded the Frontier Nursing Service -- a group of women who traveled by horseback to isolated mountain residents to provide medical care. These three compelling, poignant stories, each with a different narrator - a boy whose father almost loses his leg; a nurse in training; a mute young girl who realizes she might have a career in medicine - show Mary's effect on the people and world around her, brought to vivid life by master storyteller Rosemary Wells.
