In her moving account of how she came to understand the world around her despite being blind and deaf since childhood, Helen Keller confirms that no physical obstacle can hinder the achievements of the human mind.
Included with Keller's poignant autobiography are her letters, spanning fifteen years, which reveal her remarkable intellectual growth and empathic soul. Commentary by her teacher, Anne Sullivan, and the book's original editor is also featured, providing illuminating insight from two of Keller's closest companions.
The Story of My Life not only transformed societal attitudes toward those living with a disability, it inspired everyone who felt daunted by restrictions to dream big. Keller was eloquent proof of that dream-and of her belief that everything in life, even darkness and silence, held liberating possibilities and wonder.
