I was hoping for more info on Anne Sullivan's childhood, but apparently it was so tough for her that she refused to let helen Keller write about it. Raised in Massachusetts, her mother died and her father abandoned the children, when the Tewsbury almshouse took them in. Her brother died of TB, and Anne was left alone in the almshouse where the stench became so bad that state inspectors came to check out the problem. Anne, partially blind, threw herself at them, begging to be allowed to attend sc...more
Did this in first person. The I is actually Anne Sullivan.

I was born on April 14, 1866 in Feeding Hills, Agawam, Massachusetts and died on October 20, 1936. I was blind when I was about five years old due to a contagious eye disease called trachoma. I had slightly curly hair when my brother and I were sent to the Tewksbury, Massachusetts State poorhouse, or almshouse, at the age of ten years old. Because I have had many operations on my eyes, I hence wore sunglasses to keep the sun out of my ey...more
This is the first book I've ever read that Keller actually wrote. While her writing is somewhat stiff (partly the fault of the period in which she is writing), the depth and honesty of her description of her life with "Teacher" kept me captivated.

Incredible story of Anne Sullivan the woman who overcame great obstacles in her own life to become the rescuer and teacher of one of histories great women Helen Keller.
Good book, but I didn't read it to the end. I had too many other things on the agenda and it wasn't good enough to warrant my full attention.

Helen Keller would not be bound by conditions. Rendered deaf and blind at 19 months by scarlet fever, she learned to read (in several languages) and even speak, eventually graduating with honors from Radcliffe College in 1904, where as a student she wrote The Story of My Life. That she accomplished all of this in an age when few women attended college and the disabled were often relegated to the b...more
