Read: The Story of My Life, by Helen Keller, Candace Ward
-- When she was 19 months old, Helen Keller (1880–1968) suffered a severe illness leaving her blind and deaf. Not long after, she also became mute. Her tenacious struggle to overcome these handicaps - with the help of her inspired teacher, Anne Sullivan - is one of the great stories of human courage and dedication. In this classic autobiography, first published in 1903, Miss Keller recounts the first 22 years of her life, including the magical moment at the water pump when recognizing the connection between the word water and the cold liquid flowing over her hand, she realized objects had names.
