Discover the wonderfully entertaining autobiography of Mary Seacole—nurse, entrepreneur, and intrepid traveler.
Mary Seacole left her native Jamaica to travel through the Caribbean, The Bahamas, Central America, and to England. Keen to offer her services to English troops in the Crimea War, she was at first refused official support. Undaunted she went anyway and set up her famous hotel catering for British soldiers. She supplied food, drink, and welcome respite from the front line. She also tended to wounded soldiers and dispensed medicine in the teeth of battle. Despite her invaluable contribution, she returned to England penniless and in ill health. Thankfully her astonishing achievements were acknowledged and she became the toast of London society.
