review Mary On Horseback Three Mountain Stories 103 Ains of Appalachia and never looked back Instead she spent her life fording icy streams and climbing untracked mountains to bring medical help to those in need More nurses on horseback joined Mary and the Frontier Nursing Service. I couldn t resist buying this book at a gift shop at a coal mining town As it s a short read I consumed it on the ride homeThis book reminded me of Catherine Marshall s Christy as both were about people who came to work with the impoverished people in Appalachia Christy was a school teacher Mary Breckinridge was a nurse who started the Frontier Nursing Service Mary came into situations where there were no medical supplies or training and saved as many lives as she could These short stories were heart warming and well told but as in her real life not everyone survivedMary herself turned her own grief at losing two children and two husbands into fuel for the compassionate work that she didI am going to guess that Breckinridge County was named for her or for her family Messy Jessy resist buying this book at a gift shop at a coal mining town As it s a short The International Dictionary of Event Management The Wiley Event Management Series read I consumed it on the Domicile 1 ride homeThis book Individual Motivation Within Groups reminded me of Catherine Marshall s Christy as both were about people who came to work with the impoverished people in Appalachia Christy was a school teacher Mary Breckinridge was a nurse who started the Frontier Nursing Service Mary came into situations where there were no medical supplies or training and saved as many lives as she could These short stories were heart warming and well told but as in her Why I Am a Jew real life not everyone survivedMary herself turned her own grief at losing two children and two husbands into fuel for the compassionate work that she didI am going to guess that Breckinridge County was named for her or for her family

review Mary On Horseback Three Mountain Stories 103 Was born Mary's story is amazing And it is trueWells's realistic yet poetic prose perfectly captures the dichotomy of the majestic beauty of Appalachia and the harsh realities of mountain life This one's a gem School Library Journ. This tells three stories about Mary Breckinridge s nursing services to the family of Appalachia during the early twentieth century I bought the book a long time ago but when I flipped through it I immediately realized it was too graphic to read my young son I have waited until now to read it to him Some of the most graphicA man gets his leg crushed in the first story A mother dies in childbirth during the last story and her older daughter won t talk afterwards My son wondered why she wouldn t talkMiscellaneous talk about children dying diseases fever needles vaccines and so on So not for sensitive children The book is VERY slim even though it is a chapter book It takes less than an hour to readEditted to add Somebody else mentioned in a review about the Christian slant Honestly I don t think there is a Christian slant at all I don t think anything is mentioned of Mary Breckinridge s religious affiliations I think one Appalachian man talks very briefly about putting faith in God but honestly what do we expect him to say

review Mary On Horseback Three Mountain Stories 103 Master storyteller Rosemary Wells tells the incredible true story of a World War I nurse who brought medical care to the AppalachiansMary Breckinridge trained as a nurse during World War I rode on horseback into the isolated mount. Three stories illuminate Mary Breckridge and her ministry through the stories of people she served I found it helpful that the stories are told by both male and female characters and include lots of children An excellent afterword gives a brief biography Historical biographical stories are valuable for young children in exemplifying the character we are seeking for them to develop These stories in particular are helpful in creating a sense of gratitude Two cautions 1 Austere living conditions and issues of life and death may be a bit much for sensitive children At 53 pages it s not a long read for teachers to preview2 While there is a Christian perspective to this work and we see Christianity lived out through Mary s action this is not a preachy book That is a general advantage However in Chapter 3 Ireland of Scotland a father and mother have an argument in which the father misuses faith God will protect us to avoid something of which he is afraid needles immunizations Children could probably benefit from either some edited reading or explanation
