Most people know the story of Helen Keller who at the age of nineteen months had an illness that left her blind and deaf. A teacher was hired for Helen when she was six years old by the name of Anne Sullivan. Anne Sullivan (Macy) taught Helen how to communicate and acted as Helens eyes and ears for fifty years. She guided Helen through several schools, and ultimately Helen graduated from Radcliffe College with honors. Helen Keller, with Anne by her side, achieved worldwide fame for her work on behalf of the blind. The story of Anne Sullivan (Macy) is not well known. As a child, she herself was blind as well as poor, abused by her father, and lived for five years in an almshouse (poorhouse). This biography of Anne Sullivan (Macy) tells her story as she may have told it.

*The Story of My Life* may be the most extraordinary autobiography ever written. Its author was only 22 when it was published, in 1903, but her life to that point had already been most uncommon: she had been rendered deaf, blind, and later mute by an illness at the age of 19 months, and only years later learned to read, speak, and understand others through the dedication of a teacher extraordinary in her own right. American author and activist HELEN ADAMS KELLER (1880-1968) became famous thanks to *The Story of My Life,* which was later adapted for stage and screen in various incarnations under the title *The Miracle Worker,* a reference to that special teacher, Annie Sullivan. Here, in her own words, is Keller's firsthand experience of the dawning of enlightenment on the severely isolated child she was, and her evolution into the educated and erudite young woman she became.

She could neither see nor hear, but she experienced the world as a richly vital place, redolent of smells that were a language to her and alive with vibrations that spoke to her alone. American author and activist HELEN ADAMS KELLER (1880-1968) was already famous, thanks to her 1903 biography, when she wrote this 1908 collection of beautifully poetic essays that brought readers enthralled with her story deeper insights into how she "saw" the world. Here, she wonders at how limited the senses of others appear to her and how deeply language colors perception, and offers us a startling account of the nothingness that was her existence before her "soul dawn," before her famous teacher, Annie Sullivan, drew her out of her insular semiconsciousness. Surely one of the most extraordinary books ever written, but one of the most extraordinary people of recent centuries, this is a classic exploration of what it means to be human and alive that continues to captivate readers today.
