KIRKUS REVIEW

Helen Hoke has selected stories and poems from magazines and books, all with one characteristic in common; the nursing profession. Primarily a fictional collection, beginning with a popular Sue Barton, Student Nurse story in which the heroine gains insight into her own behavior in a crisis, and ending with one of the mystery stories of Miss Pinkerton, Nurse Detective, the 11 to 13 year old reader will find some portions new and others familiar. She will meet a junior nurse's aide in Lee Wyndham's story, Disaster, an army nurse performing her particular duties in wartime Cairo in a story by James Ramsey Ullman, a nurse in training in Sheila McKay's story A Lamp is Heavy, and America's first trained nurse in Rachel Baker's story of Linda Richards. A variety of heroines coping with diversified nursing situations will make for pleasant if not always realistic reading in a consistently popular field.
