Life is either a daring adventure or it is nothing, said Helen Keller, whose own remarkable life journey attests to the power of her courage and resolve. Keller was considered the greatest woman alive in the United States, and her star has continued to shine. In this outstanding new biography, author Carin T. Ford transports readers back in time, separating fact from legend in the story of the deaf-blind child and the teacher who found the key to her silent, dark world. In pages brimming with anecdotes and memories, Ford moves beyond Keller's childhood to her years of social and political activism for the disabled.
