"You have to go now!" he shouted. "The enemy is breaking over the hills. If the train is stopped, you will have to escape across country!"

I had a vague notion of who Clara Barton was. However after listening to this book I am blown away with what an incredible woman she was. If she saw a need, she found a way to fill it and nothing could stand in her way. She is a true hero, and I think more should be done to remember her.

This was the first book I listened to in the Heroes of History Series. It did a really good job of making history come to life!

This book was more like a collaboration of facts than an actual story. It wasn't bad, just not what I was hoping for.

This is a book for intermediate students who are learning about different charachters of the civil war. A great book especially since many women are now shown in this time period.
