   Herbal Diplomats

2005 Lavinia L. Dock Award for Exemplary Historical Research and Writing.
American Association for the History of Nursing
During the early and mid-19th century, Americans not only explored their new found political and religious freedom, they experimented extensively with health freedom and self-care, in particular the use of healing herbs. The American Botanical Medical Movement of the 1830’s – 1860’s influenced emerging American culture and was a defining time in the nation's health care history. Herbal Diplomats is the first book to explore the healing and caring role of American women nurses during the period. This fascinating book reveals the cultural diplomacy of women nurses of the lost years in antebellum history.
