When Helen Keller was just a year and a half old, a terrible illness destroyed both her hearing and her sight. Suddenly plunged into a dark, silent space, Helen could not learn or communicate with others. For six desperate years, she could not even form a complete thought. However, thanks to an amazing teacher, Helen's mind and spirit were able to awaken and connect with those around her. Brilliant, warm, unafraid, and even rebellious, she became a world famous figure and brought a remarkable light to our world.
