Keller, Helen: The Story of My Life. V1. 02-Jun-2011
Helen Adams Keller (June 27, 1880 – June 1, 1968) was an American author, political activist, and lecturer. She was the first deafblind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree. The story of how Keller's teacher, Anne Sullivan, broke through the isolation imposed by a near complete lack of language, allowing the girl to blossom as she learned to communicate, has become widely known through the dramatic depictions of the play and film The Miracle Worker.
About the book:
"The Story of My Life" is the Autobiography of Helen Keller, a classic American story of overcoming great hardship. Helen Keller, born in 1880, fell ill at age six. While the illness did not last long it left her both deaf and blind. Helen's family soon contacted the "Perkins Institute for the Blind" and the Institute sent Anne Sullivan, who herself was visually impaired, to help educate Helen. "The Story of My Life" is a story of a young woman's struggle to deal with a great physical handicap. Included here in this edition is a selection of Helen's letters and a supplementary account of her education, including passages from the reports and letters of her teacher, Anne Mansfield Sullivan, by John Albert Macy.
