Abstract:
Mary Lightfine takes on the greatest challenge of her life when she lands in the midst of an African war zone.

Find out how to instill hope in a homeless man by giving him a bath, how to save your colleague from man-eating sharks, and what to do when you find a bomb in your patient’s bed. An exciting, entertaining and inspiring read.

  Compassion in Action, Sacrificial Nursing. , 04/25/2012
Reviewer: Ella Redshirt
A up close and personal view of serving the most in need given by a brave woman, excellent and inspiring., April 24, 2012 By Ella BN Redshirt Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Nurses, Nomads and Warlords: Extreme Medicine, Surviving Somalia (Kindle Edition) Nurses, Nomads and Warlords: Extreme Medicine, Surviving Somalia is a tremendously personal inside view of going to the most dangerous and difficult setting, providing humanitarian health care to those innocents caught in the crossfire of war. Mary Lightfine is a nurse that fully deserves the title and calling of a Nurse, Florence Nightingale would be proud!! Reading what it costs those who go to these areas, fills me with awe. She shares glimpses of her early life and how this helps her to cope and give, even though it hurts. That and the wisdom she learned from her father, are an inspiration. Anyone with a compassionate heart, will be touched profoundly reading this book. It should be required reading for all nurses, and student nurses. Mary grew up in our area of NJ, and I am happy and proud to say that I knew her when we were young. I believe she was also in a photo in Life Magazine, regarding medical relief work in Bosnia. I highly recommend this book. Her dad Bob's suggestions for living, given at the end of the book, are worth the price of the book. Great job Mary!!

This a truly exciting book to read. It has adventure, happiness, sadness and success stories. Mary has a unique way of telling her story in "just the way it happened", without judgement.

  WHAT A TESTAMENT TO LIFE , 05/10/2012
Reviewer: Kathy Elliott
What a testament and memoir to your life! There arent many people who could help so many in such dire circumstances. Its a crying shame that with all our technololgy and resources that a single person in this entire world would ever have to experience what these people did/are. shame on US as a species for allowing this to happen! THANK YOU for all you do!!!!"
