The name Florence Nightingale conjures up a romantic image of "the lady with a lamp" who founded modern nursing. However, this image trivializes the accomplishments and character of one of the most remarkable women of the 19th century. Few people are aware that Nightingale was a trailblazing social activist and visionary whose ideas on such matters as public health and sanitation, holistic health, and women's place in society were decades ahead of their time. Dossey reveals the many facets of this complex, brilliant woman, including her little-known but fascinating mystical side, which inspired all of her achievements, and her early support of the Indian nationalist movement.
