5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 935 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The care of the sick, wounded, and dying during the American Civil War was a complex endeavor that brought ordinary men and women into contact with the terror of the battlefield. Hospital Transports is a compilation of letters and other papers written by physicians and nurses serving aboard the Union hospital steamboat Daniel Webster in the summer of 1862. The text details sleeping arrangements, cooking and feeding schedules, medical practices, and the incorporation of liberated slaves from the Lee plantation into the daily work of the ship. Clearly described are the emotional, visceral reactions of the corps of medical personnel who, as their ship makes its way along the Potomac picking up casualties, question the philosophies at the root of war, and the metaphysical questions concerning the definitions of life and death."--BOOK JACKET

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Often called the father of landscape architecture, Frederick Law Olmsted was responsible for the design of Central Park and Prospect Park in NewYork City; Mount Royal Park in Montreal; the Belle Isle Park in Detroit; the Grand Necklace of Parks in Milwaukee; the Cherokee Park and entire parks system in Louisville, KY; and the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina, to name a few of his most famous projects. His landscape works are enjoyed in 25 states and 3 Canadian provinces. Most of these parks were created during and immediately after the Civil War. This title presents the opportunity to witness the evolution of Olmstedrs's design and social philosophies during a time of upheaval in American history. Sixteen selections, dating from the 1850s to the 1890s, reveal Frederick Law Olmstedrs's youthful interests as well as his mature thinking on cities, small residential sites, the history and theory of urban parks, and landscape architecture in general. His writings directly addressed important issues of hisday, but they remain as cogent as ever in today's environmental crisis."--pub. desc
