An illness in early childhood left Helen Keller deaf and blind, but at age six her bleak existence changed profoundly: Anne Sullivan began teaching her to communicate through “finger-spelling.” The profoundly isolated, temperamental child became a voracious learner and embraced the world, dedicating her life to easing the suffering of others.
Women Who Dare: Helen Keller examines Keller’s fascinating life and accomplishments with informative text and dozens of historical photographs. A special section of the book is devoted to Anne Sullivan, who became known as “the Miracle Worker” for the pioneering teaching methods that allowed Helen to blossom into one of the most admired and respected women of her time.
