    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 is really a mixed review. I have trouble with historical fiction marketed as biography. And this really is historical fiction, in the sense that there is a lot of made-up dialogue and storytelling. For example, we can’t really know just exactly what was the conversation between Barton and her teacher when she arrived for her first day of school already able to spell “artichoke”, can we? Or the precise details of her discussion with the soldier who told her she could keep working on a battlef This is really a mixed review. I have trouble with historical fiction marketed as biography. And this really is historical fiction, in the sense that there is a lot of made-up dialogue and storytelling. For example, we can’t really know just exactly what was the conversation between Barton and her teacher when she arrived for her first day of school already able to spell “artichoke”, can we? Or the precise details of her discussion with the soldier who told her she could keep working on a battlefield another hour if she was able to ride a horse to get away? These are fiction, not dialogue recorded at the time for the historical record. On the other hand, the factionalized part of this history is what makes it so readable. It’s a fast, easy read, making it perfect for late elementary/early secondary students or anyone who is interested in biography but hates lengthy biography. The made-up dialogue makes it lively. And it does provide a nicely succinct overview of Barton’s life. The broad action is accurate and it covers most of the significant details that make her life worth remembering. Of course, it might not entirely please fiction-lovers either. Like most historical fiction based on an actual life story, it doesn’t work the same way outright fiction does. There isn’t a singular storyline building to a dramatic climax — life stories don’t usually work that way. It’s not a novel. For someone wanting a fast, entertaining fictional story about Clara Barton’s life, this would fit the bill. For those interested in an accurate biography of Barton, this probably isn’t the best book.

    Short, fast read but I learned so much. She was never trained as a nurse, and got involved in the Civil War and Spanish-American War almost by accident. She was primarily responsible for getting the U.S. to join the Geneva Convention. She fought for the rights of women, prisoners, blacks, and even Muslims.

    Phenomenal woman -- much more diverse background than I remembered. Read a biography about her ~50 years ago. It was particularly interesting to me personally to hear about her serving in the areas where I currently live. Also mentioned several times was Dansville, NY, which is only a stone's throw from where I grew up. I do so enjoy this series of Heroes of History.

    As always, books in this series create a story of the subjects life. Making it easy and fun to read. I learned all about Clara's good works and her eventual success at bring the US to be part of the Red Cross. So nice to learn about all of the background behind the two sentence summary I got in history class. As always, books in this series create a story of the subjects life.

    Easy read and captivating story and this comes from someone who was quite bored in history class growing up. I would love to read other books from their series! God bless you!

    I was surprised at the ties to the free masons in this book. But I enjoyed this little book I read with Aliza very much.

    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.

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