Mary Seacole's Autobiography

The autobiography of Mary Seacole is now freely available to download from the Gutenberg Project:
"The Wonderful Adventures of Mrs. Seacole
in Many Lands"
by Mary Seacole, 1857.
Also in the Library we have a lending copy on display of the 2004 book
"Mary Seacole: The most famous black woman of the Victorian Age" by Jane Robinson.

Check out the excellent website of the Mary Seacole Centre
to learn even more about this amazing, couragous, Jamaican born nurse,
called by some "the greatest black Briton in history"!
