Publisher's 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.

We need more selfless people!

Those who become rich but haven't really helped the masses have totally wasted their lives.

I learned so much from this audio book!

I had heard of George Washington Carver, but that's about it. I knew something about him inventing peanut butter to help all of the US with better nutrition, but oh he did much more than peanut butter. I couldn't stop listening to it. I almost finished it in one day. Yes, it's that good.

He did all of his inventions, farming improvement lessons, saving money lessons, etc. during a difficult time for African Americans. Saying that it was a difficult time for African Americans back then, doesn't adequately describe the horrors and inequality that Dr. Carver had to go through. It is embarrassing and horrifying to read of slavery, Jim Crow laws and racism from our history. But, every person in the US, needs to read this book and any other book about him.

Made for children…

I found the historical account slightly off, more in story form, but still interesting, but I wouldn’t consider it’s form as a biography. It felt as though the audio version was geared more toward the young listener than adults.

Loved every minute of it!

This is a person that should highlighted more in our public school history program. Teaching about endurance, believing in yourself/spiritual oneness, self-worth is much needed among us right now. I'd recommend this to all that love history. There was a lot I knew but also A Lot I learned from this biography. Love, love, loved it!!!

Thought provoking, insightful, brilliant!

This amazing true story will inspire, energize and share timeliness wisdom to the one who will commit deep thought to its content.

The narration was outstanding, and took you to the place (I’m sure) the original author had hoped for. Well researched and presented, it made for very interesting reading (listening). I absolutely loved this book!
