im not sure what is up here, but this book is only 15 pages long. so unless that is actually the length of the book or if this is just a sample. be warned.

I don't believe a journal is only 15 pages long. I was just getting into it and bam it was over. bear-lady

Every American History student should read this journal to get an accutate view of what war and wounds meant to every soldier and family before medical advancements. Unlike today most wounded warriors died in squalid conditions. Thank Goodness for modern medicine available for today's soldiers. This is not just a story; it was life and death to our great great grandparents. LadyB

This was more an essay than a book. Just 15 pages. Seems like there should be more. I'm glad it was free. I'd have hated to pay for it.

I was disappointed at the short nature of this "book", if you could really call it that. A whole whopping 15 pages, that starts to whet your appetite and then directs you to follow up on the website for more. Glad it was a freebie, I'd be none to happy if I had actually paid for it. That being said, if the whole of it were available in either hard copy or ebook format I think it would be a worthwhile purchase and an engaging read.

This is the real thing. A short but honest report on the efforts of a Nurse on the front lines during the Civil War. Powerful and haunting. I reflect back on her words as I mentor women in the workplace.

As a RN, I was expecting so much more! I was disappointed, but still cant beat the price--it was free!!

Three stars because as other reviwers have stated, just gotten into it when it was over. However to the author and barnes and noble, thank you for the free book.

It was so interesting to learn how things were at that time in the history of our country and how people were, how they thought and how things were then. It begins to put the peices of the puzzle together to learn from then to now, which will be tomorrows history.

I thought I would like this book because I am a nurse and could associate with it, but I was disappointed. Author was very scattered with ideas and hard to follow, also book was very short.

Interesting prespective on the Civil War. Very short but it is free so you can't complain.

Don't complain about not knowing that it was short because the first sentence does have the words short story in it. Anyways, pretty good for a free book.

While interesting this book was a pretty short read. A little mumble jumbled, no real story or understanding of character.

Could be very interesting but would not consider this a "Book since it is only 15 pages long. Hardly worth the time it took to download it !
