George Washington Carver was born into slavery, orphaned before he could walk, and was plagued by prejudice, poverty and ill health.  He became, however, one of the most remarkable human beings who ever lived.  This book brilliantly recreates the story of a great man who never looked for fame and fortune, yet found the world coming to him for knowledge and friendship.  His legacy extends far beyond the peanuts he is best known for.
