Helen Keller's The Story of My Life changed the world. But The World I Live In, Keller's sequel to her autobiography, remains almost completely unknown. Here, responding to skeptics who doubted that a girl who was blind, deaf, and mute almost from birth could find words to describe her experience, Keller presents a striking word-picture of her reality. The World I Live In is an evocative, inspirational, and deeply moving account of an extraordinary woman's keenest impressions. It includes Keller's first published essay, written when she was 12 years old.
