Robbed of three of her five senses at a young age, Helen Keller worked as a crusader for the education of the deaf and blind, and helped disabled people around the world find hope. At 19 months old, Keller suddenly lost her ability to see and hear, leaving her deaf, dumb, and mute. She was left to live in darkness and silence until a young teacher named Anne Sullivan used groundbreaking methods to teach Keller not only how to read and write, but even how to speak. An intelligent young woman, she was the first deaf-blind person to graduate from college. This miraculous woman's life became a symbol of triumph over adversity, and her story stands as a testament to the idea that any obstacle can be overcome.

"Forget that I am deaf and blind and think of me as an ordinary woman," wrote Helen Keller--but she was anything but ordinary. When Helen was growing up, there were no facilities to help handicapped students. Still, she learned to speak, read, and write, attended Radcliffe College, wrote five books, and lectured all over the world. It wasn't enough to prove that she could do anything. Helen wanted other handicapped people to know that they could, too. And Helen achieved her purpose: the world saw a real woman behind the handicaps, and an extraordinary human being behind the legend.

Helen Keller had absolutely no hearing or eyesight from the age of two, but became one of the most inspiring and well known people to have ever lived. For a number of years she functioned, in her words, simply as "an unconscious clod of earth." Then quite suddenly, she experienced the impact of "another mind" within her own. Despite not knowing where it came from or how it got there, she awoke to a new awareness of being able to talk and listen with her hands. She learned to read and write, wrote at least ten books, and attended college. Her religion developed from living deeply within her spiritual self, cut off from normal sensation, and spending her life on a spiritual plane. She incorporated her own experiences with the teachings of Emanuel Swedenborg, a mystic born in 1688, and the Swedenborgian Church. Swedenborg, like Keller, had experienced other realms of spirit and transmitted deeper teachings that Helen saw with great clarity. She wrote this book after receiving many requests for her to describe her religious beliefs.
