When George Washington Carver was born, he had many things against him. He was a sick, weak, little baby. His father had just died, and his mother was left alone to care for him and his brother James. Even worse, he was the son of slaves. There was no hope for the future. But George Washington Carver was no ordinary man. He was a man who turned evil into good, despair into hope and hatred into love. He was a man who devoted his whole life into helping his people and the world around him. This is his story.

George Washington Carver, a former orphaned slave invented peanut butter and was known as "The Peanut Man." He became famous because of his peanut inventions but he was much more than a peanut magician. From 1896 until his death in 1943 he worked to improve the lives of poor farmers in Alabama and other farms in the south. A professor at the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute, he gave speeches to groups of people both white and black, as well as to farmers groups, and came to gain the respect of both white and black people. Booker T. Washington said that Carver was, "a great teacher, a great lecturer, a great inspirerer [sic] of young men and old men."

Unabridged audio CD; approximately 1 hour 49 minutes; 2 CDs.
