The story of my life

Helen Keller.

THE 100th YEAR ANNIVERSARY EDITION The Story of My Life, a remarkable account of overcoming the debilitating challenges of being both deaf and blind, has become an international classic, making Helen Keller one of the most well-known, inspirational figures in history. Originally published in 1903, Keller's fascinating memoir narrates the events of her life up to her third year at Radcliffe College. Helen Keller's story of struggle and achievement is one of unquenchable hope. From tales of her difficult early days, to details of her relationship with her beloved teacher Anne Sullivan, to her impressions of academic life, Keller's honest, straightforward writing lends insight into an amazing mind. Like the original, this centenary edition ofThe Story of My Lifeincludes letters Keller wrote to friends throughout her childhood and adolescence that chronicle her intellectual and sensory progression, as well as assistant John Macy's commentary on her interpretations of her surroundings. In addition to reprinting Keller's long-lost original work, this edition contains excerpts from her little-known, deeply personal memoirThe World We Live In, which give readers a detailed look into an otherwise unimaginable existence, as well as an excerpt fromOut of the Dark, a political commentary Keller wrote during her years as a socialist. Deftly edited and prefaced by scholar James Berger, this comprehensive anniversary edition celebrates a century of readers' enthrallment with one of the most powerful figures in history.
