This installment of Nicolas Soames’ Famous People in History series, aimed at the middle-school crowd, offers a brief yet insightful primer on "The Lady of the Lamp's" revolutionary contributions to the field of nursing while caring for wounded British soldiers in Turkey during the height of the Crimean War.

Katinka Wolf’s warm, inviting tone and spirited delivery makes this informative audiobook about a remarkably selfless woman’s achievements eminently listenable and palatable to all audiences.


This is a story from the Famous People in History collection.

Here are the stories of nine people whose energy, imagination, courage, and determination changed the world. From Christopher Columbus who set off into unknown seas in a small ship in the 15th century, to a young girl, Anne Frank, caught in the turmoil of the 20th, who wrote a remarkable diary while in hiding in Amsterdam during the Second World War. Their personalities and their achievements make them heroes and heroines for our time also. This program features short biographies of Christopher Columbus, Elizabeth I, William Shakespeare, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Lord Nelson, Charles Darwin, Florence Nightingale, Abraham Lincoln, and Anne Frank.
