Here's the Press Release that went out to the newspapers this week. Look Mom - I'm 'almost famous!"
Women’s healthcare nurse practitioner Nancy Leigh Harless, of Wever, Iowa, has released her first book, a collection of stories entitled “WOMANKIND: Connection & Wisdom Around the World.”
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, “Womankind” is a compilation of stories from real women across the world that Harless has encountered in her travels and experience as a women’s health nurse practitioner. From the Mayan mothers in the Belize rainforest to a race for the hospital with a laboring woman in the Kosovo countryside, the author tells the stories of the women she met, separated by land but united by the grace and strength of womankind.
The book is available at any bookstore nationwide or can be ordered through barnesandnoble.com, amazon.com or walmart.com. Audio versions of the book are also available.
Originally from Washington state, Harless is a graduate of the Intercollegiate Center for Nursing Education through Eastern Washington University. After working several years as a nurse, she returned to school at the University of Texas Southwest Medical Center to become a women’s healthcare nurse practitioner. Now retired, she divides her time between her home in Wever, Iowa, and traveling the world with her husband, Norm. A second volume of “Womankind” is currently in production.
