Product Description:

This concise biography presents the life and legacy of George Washington Carver, and in the process, clarifies that Biblical faith is not an impediment to scientific exploration. Drawn from a collection of original letters and speeches by Carver himself, this well-documented book tells the fascinating and true story of one of America's greatest scientists from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries'. Beginning with Carver's birth in poverty and slavery, and extending through his fruitful career as an internationally acclaimed inventor and botanist, this text clearly reveals how he became not only a great man of science, but also a great man of faith. The book has larger print and several black and white photos. While the photos in this book are not impressive, the message conveyed still makes this volume a good choice for any teenager or adult. 104 pgs, pb. ~ Mike
