Kate Marsden -A nurse who cared for the injured on the battlefield during the war between Russia and Turkey in the late 1800s, she was determined to help the suffering Russian lepers. Ever the go-getter, Kate packed up her sled and rode on horseback across 2,000 miles of Siberian wilderness in search of medicine. Taking only, a whip, pistol, and food items she risked bear attacks and robbers.
