This book describes the life of Louis Braille who, blinded accidentally as a young boy, was sent to an institution in Paris where he devoted his life to developing the finger system for reading now used by the blind all over the world. He died at the age of 43, unknown and unhonoured. The author tells of the trials and torments Braille suffered in his attempts to perfect the system and to get it accepted. Lennard Bickel has also written "This Accursed Land", "The Deadly Element", "Shackleton's Forgotten Argonauts", "Rise Up to Life", "Facing Starvation" and "The Southern Universe".show more
