The new book, Lyle Creelman: The frontiers of global nursing, is a thoroughly-researched, well-documented book that explores not only Creelman’s life, but how a single nurse can affect global health history and leave a lasting footprint.

The detailed analysis and academic slant make it appealing for scholars of Canadian history, women’s issues, and medical and health history. But the central biographical story will have a wide appeal to nurses across Canada.
