Keller's story has been inspiring readers for generations and was named one of the 100 most important books of the 20th century by the New York Public Library. This edition, however, has been restored with material not found in previous editions, including accounts by teacher Anne Sullivan and assistant John Macy as well as a new foreword and afterword by editor and scholar Shattuck. The text is buttressed with ten illustrations, and the volume has an index and a suggested reading list. A gem. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

Helen Keller was 19 months old when disease left her deaf and blind. That she could relearn to communicate and later write a vividly visual account of her education was the ultimate overcoming-adversity story, featuring many great people of her age, e.g., Alexander Graham Bell and Mark Twain. This inspiring book has never been out of print. (LJ 3/1/03) (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
