Once a kidnapped slave baby, George Washington Carver 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 reaching and diverse achievements, Dr. Carver generously shared his talent simply for the reward of helping others.

Review 1 for Heroes of History: George Washington Carver, From Slave to Scientist

I grew up less than 100 miles from where Carver lived and could have visited him in his old age. I'm very sad I wasn't aware of how outstanding this man was. Fabulous man and biography.

Review 2 for Heroes of History: George Washington Carver, From Slave to Scientist
Date:May 24, 2010
This is my first "Heroes of History" book from the Benge's, and I intend to read many more! My church is sponsoring a summer reading contest for the kids and some of these books were on the list. I read this one in 2 sittings - I could not put it down! George Washington Carver's story is fascinating, he is so much more than the peanut man! The book reads like fiction, like a well-crafted story should read. You will not be disappointed! And the kids should love these, too.
