A Man for All Seasons: The Life of George Washington Carver

Out of stock
No man has enough learning," George Washington Carver once said, "and me, I'm still trying to find out what makes it rain and why sunflowers grow so tall." Born into slavery and orphaned before he was a year old, Carver went on to become the first African American graduate of a white college, and its first African American teacher. As a botanist, he brought supplies and new ideas to poor farmers, helping them to grow a greater variety of crops. Time line. Full-color illustrations.
