About the Book

“Letters and experiences of the courageous girl, blind and deaf from infancy, who educated herself despite these handicaps.”
— A.L.A. Catalog 1926
“The book is indeed unique. The story itself and the years of effort which have made its telling possible, the personality which it reveals, and the creation of that personality,—these are things which seem little short of miraculous. The narrative of a young woman who has been deaf and blind from infancy is written in a style which is not only idiomatic, but individual and rhythmical. As one reads, one forgets to make allowances for limitations which are apt to slip out of sight, until a chance phrase recalls one with a start to the realization that the mind which deals so freely and normally with the ordinary factors of human life dwells forever in silence and the dark.”
– Standard Catalog for Public Libraries : Biography Section (1927)
