Description
An illness in early childhood left Helen Keller (18801968) deaf and blind. Unable to express herself and impossible to communicate with, she was completely shut off from the world around her. She was six years old when her bleak existence changed profoundly, after Anne Sullivan taught her how to communicate through finger-spelling. The formerly isolated, temperamental child became a voracious learner, embarking on a career dedicated to easing the suffering of others around the world. This concise illustrated biography introduces a remarkable woman who stepped outside of the proscribed social boundaries of her day and helped make it possible for other women to follow her example, and includes a section devoted to Sullivan, who became known as "the Miracle Worker" for the pioneering teaching methods that allowed Helen to blossom into one of the most admired and respected women of her time. The palm-sized book is illustrated with dozens of captioned archival photos and other images, and provides information on further reading and sources.
