Publisher's Summary

This is the inspiring autobiography of Helen Keller, blind and deaf since childhood, who experiences the wonder and joys of discovery of the world around her and of literature.

Helen Adams Keller (June 27, 1880 - June 1, 1968) was an American author, political activist, and lecturer. She was the first deaf-blind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree. The story of how Keller's teacher, Anne Sullivan, broke through the isolation imposed by a near complete lack of language, allowing the girl to blossom as she learned to communicate, has become widely known through the dramatic depictions of the play and film The Miracle Worker.

Inspiring!

Very interesting, especially since it was written by Helen Keller herself (when she was in her early 20s – that’s probably why it’s so short!).

I find it just incredible that she was able to overcome her ‘handicaps” and learn Latin and French and German! It’s very impressive and inspiring.

I wanted more information about her early life and to read more about what it was like for her to live at that time being both deaf and blind… then again, I suppose the fact that she did not dwell on it is further proof of her amazing tenacity.
