When she was 19 months old, Helen Keller (1880-1968) suffered a severe illness that left her blind and deaf.  Not long after, she also became mute.  Her tenacious struggle to overcome these handicaps-with the help of her inspired teacher, Anne Sullivan, is one of the great stories of human courage and dedication.  In this classic autobiography, first published in 1903, Keller recounts the first 22 years of her life, including the magical moment at the water pump when, recognizing the connection between the word "water" and the cold liquid flowing over her hand, she realized that objects had names.  This and many other aspects of Helen Keller's life are presented here in clear, straightforward prose full of wonderful descriptions and imagery that would do credit to a sighted writer.  Completely devoid of self-pity, yet full of love and compassion for others, this deeply moving memoir offers an unforgettable portrait of one of the outstanding women of the twentieth century.  5 3/16” x 8 ¼”.  Paperback; 80 pages.
