George Washington Carver began life as a slave in the tumultuous world of pre - Civil War Missouri. After the war, the orphaned Carver worked as a farmer, a hotel cook, and a laundryman while pursuing an education. As a professor at the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute, Carver spearheaded the initiative to cultivate peanuts, soybeans, and sweet potatoes to revive the South's dismal agricultural economy. He also researched the domestic and industrial possibilities of these crops, and is most remembered for the invention of peanut butter.More

I learned something today. This is a must read.
Great way to learn history
Yes, it was well read/narrated and the story was engaging.
Hearing the history of George Washington Carver from birth to death and how he lead his life. I am very grateful for him and all the others who have gone on before me to pave the way so that I can live and enjoy the life I do as an American woman of African descent.
As a matter of fact I completed the book while driving and taking my daily walks. During the breaks between listening it gave me time to think about the contributions George and Frederick Douglas both gave to humanity.
I am so loving listening to books from Audible!
