Publisher Comments:

Helen Keller's triumph over her blindness and deafness has become one of the most inspiring and well-known stories of our time, as well as the subject of movies and plays such as The Miracle Worker. Here is her famous autobiography, a book that captures her early years and her struggle to communicate and become educated. Includes selected letters.

About the Author

An American classic rediscovered by each generation, The Story of My Life is Helen Kellers account of her triumph over deafness and blindness. Popularized by the stage play and movie The Miracle Worker, Kellers story has become a symbol of hope for people all over the world.

This book-published when Keller was only twenty-two-portrays the wild child who is locked in the dark and silent prison of her own body. With an extraordinary immediacy, Keller reveals her frustrations and rage, and takes the reader on the unforgettable journey of her education and breakthroughs into the world of communication. From the moment Keller recognizes the word “water” when her teacher finger-spells the letters, we share her triumph as “that living word awakened my soul, gave it light, hope, joy, set it free!” An unparalleled chronicle of courage, The Story of My Life remains startlingly fresh and vital more than a century after its first publication, a timeless testament to an indomitable will.
