Yet another biography in the Christian Encounters series which is truly a masterpiece!

Perry brings to life this remarkable Chistian! Born into slavery, and on his death a man whose name was well known in nearly every American household, Carver was a man worthy of being called an American hero!

Articulate and educated, Carver was first and foremost a Christian. An educator who was more at home in the laboratory than the classroom, believing that education came fom practice! And a man who wanted the African-American man to know that he could accomplish anything!

Known for his life-long work with the Tuskogee Institute, and his moniker "the Peanut Man", Carver was also friends with the likes of Booker T. Washington, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford and others. He dined with the elite, including President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

As with all persons of celebrity and notoriety, Carver had his quirks. Perry handled these with great dignity and sensitivity.

A truly gifted writer, I highly recommend John Perry's George Washington Carver.

I rate this book....

...Five Stars and...

...give it my
Thumbs Up! award.
