Abstract

This book is the dramatic and gripping memoir of Clara Leach Adams-Ender, an African-American woman who refused to be bound to the distinctions between men's work and women's work and traveled her own road to greatness as a military officer and nurse. The memoir recounts her journey from farm worker, in the tobacco fields of North Carolina, to the Pentagon as the Chief of the United States Army Nurse Corps.
