Risking surprise encounters with desperate bootleggers, they answered the call usually alone with only what they could carry in their saddlebags.Undaunted by fires, floods, drought, the Great Depression and World War II rationing, they brought care to America’s most remote families, lowering the maternity death rate below the national average.One young nurse had to reach deep into her soul for the courage to go on.By and by, she could not imagine her life anyplace else.Here is her story.
