I know that I own a copy of this book except I do not remember where I put it. I really liked the way Hellen's teacher helped her learn how to read and write.
Yes, and there have been many books written about her as well, as she is the one who started the ball rolling!

I was first introduced to Hellen Keller, among Leadership books. Many make abundant references to her in skill and example.
This encounter soon became a curiosity when I saw one of her quotes in my parent's office.
I live in this curiosity and these two are definitive reasons to read it.

A wonderful read, I absolutely love it. I read it earlier this year.

I must say her journey is fascinating. The book also includes transcripts from her first attempt at writing to her last. I don't know why this book made me cry so much... It's just that this woman still loved being alive and made efforts, not excuses. Even though her world was dark is silent, she was still awed by any bit of life. A phenomenal woman and read.
