GEORGE WASHINGTON CARVER Mar 18, 2010
A TERRIFIC BOOK ABOUT AN AWESOME MAN OF GOD AND A SCIENTIST, AN UNUSUAL COMBINATION IN THIS DAY AND AGE. AS THE AUTHOR STATES: "BEING THAT A PERSON'S FAITH IS POSSIBLY THE MOST INTIMATE ASPECT OF THEIR LIFE, THIS AUTHOR HAS DECIDED THAT THE MOST UNBIASED WAY TO EXPLORE THE FAITH THAT MOTIVATED GEORGE WASHINGTON CARVER IS TO ALLOW YOU TO PARTAKE IN THE ADVENTURE OF AN AUTHOR, EXAMINING FOR YOURSELF LETTERS TO HIS DEAREST FRIENDS, NOTES TO HIS CLOSED ASSOCIATES & CORRESPONDENCE TO THOSE WHO PLAYED PIVOTAL ROLES IN HIS LIFE." ENJOY, I DID.
An Outstanding Book About An Extraordinary Man Jul 18, 2008
One of the most often overlooked great men of the Twentieth Century was the humble Christian and brilliant scientist, George Washington Carver. Most adults and children are more familiar with later African-American leaders, and know little about this extraordinary individual who contributed so much to making life better for all humankind.
William J. Federer's book is an excellent and interesting introduction to and overview of Mr. Carver's life. Homeschoolers will find it especially good for use as a supplement to junior high and high school American history studies. Bible-believing Christians will be inspired by learning how Mr. Carver's deep faith impelled him to remarkable achievements, despite the greatest challenges and obstacles. With the recent emphasis upon self-reliance by contemporary African-American leaders such as Bill Cosby and Barack Obama, African-American youth will find a sterling example of these applauded qualities and virtues in Mr. Carver's life.
Do not be put off by the book's less than attractive cover, or its amateurish production. The content is excellent.
