Herein lies the classic true story of Helen Keller, written by Margaret Davidson. Learn about an unbelievably determined girl whose life in this world was a dark, quiet struggle before the day her teacher, Annie Sullivan, joined her. Though Helen and Annie got off to a rough start, it didn't take long for a miracle to happen - Helen finally grasped that everything had a name and a meaning, and she was no longer trapped in her own world. Annie taught her words by signing into her hand, and Helen listened with her palm. When she was twelve years old, she stubbornly decides that despite her challenges, she was going to go to college. Teacher and student spent the next six years in intensive study so that by the time Helen was eighteen she would be prepared. She was - she graduated after four years cum laude! She went on to dedicate her life to helping others. She visited injured soldiers from World War II who had found themselves blind and feeling like they didn't want to go on, and she spoke all over the country and sometimes overseas. She was always up for adventure and had a deep appreciation for the written word and good friends.
