Description

This volume shines a light on people throughout history who refused to live in the shadows, despite possessing conditions that isolated them from society. Readers will learn about iconic figures such as the Elephant Man and Helen Keller to the lesser-known Tree Man of Bangladesh, whose wart-covered hands and feet appear to be sprouting branches, and Juliana Wetmore, the girl born without a face. The Worlds Most Unusual People introduces readers to people who are extraordinary not only because of their unusual conditions, but because of what they were able to accomplish in spite of them. Sidebars, a glossary, and books and websites in the further reading section are also included.
