Born a slave near the end of the Civil War, George Washington Carver was a small and sickly child. Too frail to work in the fields of the Missouri farm where he grew up, George did chores around the house. But when his work was done, he headed for the woods. There his lifelong love of nature was born. As a teacher and scientist at Alabama's Tuskegee Institute in the 1900s, George Washington Carver became famous for his work helping farmers grow better crops while sharing with them his love of nature's beauty. Follow George's inspiring life through this beautifully illustrated and engagingly written book.
