On Sledge and Horseback to Outcast Siberian Lepers PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

On Sledge and Horseback to Outcast Siberian Lepers free pdf Having served as a nurse in Bulgaria during 1878 tending the casualties of the Russian-Turkish War, Kate Marsden saw first-hand the horrors of leprosy and determined to plan a journey to the leper colonies of Yakutsk, 2000 miles across the wastes of Siberia. Armed with the patronage of Queen Victoria and the Tsarina of Russia, suits for all occasions and her nurse's bonnet, she strode forth. The story of her travels and encounters in search of the lepers and of the elusive remedial herb, found only in Yakutsk, is astounding. Indeed there was much scepticism from certain quarters that such a feat could be possible, let alone by a woman. Kate Marsden tells her story with passion, determination, at times displaying an endearing vulnerability and a refreshing wit.
