Summary
Once a kidnapped slave baby, George Washington Carver (1864?-1943) found freedom in learning everything he could about the world around him. Overcoming poverty and racism, George became a brilliant scientist and a gifted professor who dedicated his expertise to helping black farmers escape the devastating grip of poverty. George's scientific creativity knew no limits. His ingenious experimentation with peanuts and other plants helped rescue the failing Southern economy. Still remembered for his far-reaching and diverse achievements, Dr. Carver generously shared his talent simply for the reward of helping others.

Not an exhaustive biography, but a compelling narrative style that is well read. Really captures the spirit of the man.

George Washington Carver has been one of my heroes for many years. Recently I visited his home in Missouri and decided to find out more about his life and his accomplishments. The fact that he had the ability to be positive in the race struggles of post civil war years is so refreshing. As a white person I love this man and his legacy
