Story Summary

A nicely done, inspiring biography of Laura Bridgman who lost her sight and hearing to Scarlet Fever when she was two, in 1831. Her passion and inquisitiveness led her to master both crafts and academics and helped pave the way for acceptance and education of the deaf and blind in society.
