An Autobiography of Elizabeth Davis

Elizabeth Davis – known in Wales as Betsy Cadwaladyr – was a ladies' maid from Meirionnydd who travelled the world and gained fame as a nurse during the Crimean War. She was a dynamic character who broke free of the restrictions placed on women in Victorian times to lead a life of adventure. Journeying to many exotic parts of the globe, she came into contact with international events in the horrors of the field hospital at Balaclava, where she served under Florence Nightingale.

Betsy's story is a unique record – the authentic voice of an early nineteenth century Welsh working woman recalling the events and experiences of an action-packed life.

Originally published in 1857, this edition includes an introduction by Professor Deirdre Beddoe.

Betsy Cadwaladyr: A Balaclava Nurse was the first publication in the Honno Classics series, an imprint that brings out-of-print books in English by women writers from Wales to a new generation
of readers. This revised edition appears in the renamed Welsh Women's Classics series.
