Helen Keller: Her Life in Pictures (Helen Keller)by George Sullivan
Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing at all. —Helen Keller.
Sullivan's book captures the adventure that was Keller's life in a series of incredible photographs. A fascinating children's biography about an immensely daring and gracious woman.
Synopses & Reviews
Rare photographs and informative text tell the story of Helen Keller's life from the iconic moment at the pump through her career as goodwill delegate to the world.
The fascinating life of one of the most popular historical figures is told through images — most rarely, if ever, seen — from the American Foundation for the Blind and The Perkins School for the Blind. The images trace Keller's life from birth, to childhood with Annie Sullivan in the cottage, to college, and on to her many years as a dedicated social activist and spokesperson. We get a glimpse of her sense of humor, her experiences as a lecturer on the vaudeville circuit, her many pets, and her last quiet years in Connecticut.
