    Such a smart and gentle soul George Washington Carver: A Life From Beginning to End by Hourly History tells about George's life and I am amazed at how he sweet natured he seemed to be. His early life must have been rough, probably not as bad as most back then, but I think I might have been bitter. I also didn't know how many plants fungi are named after him.

    This is a very good book about the life of a major contributor to the study and use of plants. It also shows how someone (in this case a black man) could go from rather poor living conditions but fired with a desire to learn (and specifically learn about botany) could overcome obstacles and end up being a teacher and someone many others looked up to. His education was sort of hit-and-miss as he attended various schools and kept learning and ended up being a teacher at Tuskegee College. The book g This is a very good book about the life of a major contributor to the study and use of plants. It also shows how someone (in this case a black man) could go from rather poor living conditions but fired with a desire to learn (and specifically learn about botany) could overcome obstacles and end up being a teacher and someone many others looked up to. His education was sort of hit-and-miss as he attended various schools and kept learning and ended up being a teacher at Tuskegee College. The book goes into the many contributions he made to the study of plants and how they could be used (for example, peanuts) and how he became so well known and appreciated for his work he even ended up testifying before the House Ways and Means Committee. He was a humble man, dedicated to helping others and it seems he would have been a very good man, a very nice man to know and to talk to and learn from. It also interests me how he had developed such a strong interest in plants very early in life even though it doesn't seem there was any one encouraging him in that regards. I've often wondered why certain people are called to certain areas of learning from early on even though there doesn't seem to be any exterior people or force acting on them in any way. Fortunately it does happen, though, and we end up with people like him who make a major contribution to the lives of others by their very being.

    A Humble Servant of God If every human being lived life the way Dr George Washington Carver did, we would live in a utopia. He was a humble man who was born a slave, came to walk with God at a very young age through nature, and spent his entire life trying to create better lives for poor, black farmers in the south. He worked his way through school, sometimes poor excuses for schools, and educated himself much of the time. Even at the height of his fame, he had to endure racial practices and prej A Humble Servant of God If every human being lived life the way Dr George Washington Carver did, we would live in a utopia. He was a humble man who was born a slave, came to walk with God at a very young age through nature, and spent his entire life trying to create better lives for poor, black farmers in the south. He worked his way through school, sometimes poor excuses for schools, and educated himself much of the time. Even at the height of his fame, he had to endure racial practices and prejudices, which he did with humility, charm and humor. I learned that I didn’t know very much at all about this wonderful man. This was one of the most enjoyable books I have read this year.

    G.W. Carver An American Pioneer Not much is contemporarily mention of Dr. Carver today. Only those who were educated in segregated schools may remember that he and Booker T.

    What a charming, well-written story of a (fairly) unsung hero.  I've read his story before but this version gave more information about the man's strong belief in God and how it led him through life.  It's nice to see there were ecologists in America before the term was coined.  What I liked about this story was Carver's constant teaching the best of what he knew to everyone open to new ideas.  Those farmers with poor soils were able to renourish their lands by following Carver's proven theories What a charming, well-written story of a (fairly) unsung hero.  I've read his story before but this version gave more information about the man's strong belief in God and how it led him through life.  It's nice to see there were ecologists in America before the term was coined.  What I liked about this story was Carver's constant teaching the best of what he knew to everyone open to new ideas.  Those farmers with poor soils were able to renourish their lands by following Carver's proven theories.  It's good to see someone kind and caring being acknowledged.

    Best book from the Hourly History series I've read several books from the Hourly History series, and this one has been the best, by far. This is a message to the publisher/producer: use this writer again (they're anonymous to us, obviously, but not the publisher) The style reads easily, and, most importantly, all the sources are listed. Good overview of Carver's life, and shared many details (such as his faith) of which I was unaware.

    Simply incredible It would have been easy for Carver to spend his life in bitterness and self pity, but he certainly didn't. He was many years ahead of his time. This story should be taught in schools. As with all of the Hourly History books I have read, this is well researched and written in a manner as to be intriguing to the reader.

    This is an amazing story about the Life of George Carver. He was such an extraordinary person. It's so amazing how overcame all the obstacles that was before him. Every African American young or old should read this book. It was interesting front to ending. Enjoyed reading just wished more was written regarding his personal life.

    Clear, concise, an interesting read This story is interestingly detailed but not bogged down with minutiae. Grammatically suited for young students and scholars alike, it should be inspiring to younger audiences.

    In grade school back in the 60's I was taught that George Washington Carver was largely responsible for peanuts becoming a very popular crop in the south. I didn't know much else about his life until this very interesting biography.

    A man whose life should inspire all who read of his closeness to to God, his love of nature and it's mysteries, his desire to help his people his,loyalty to his university. And last but not least, his magnificent successes.

    More than peanuts... A concise but informative telling of George Washington Carver. My review is probably biased by how fond I have long been of Carver, but I especially like the focus in this book on his faith and how his relationship with God guided his life's work.

    Only knew of George Washington Carver as "The Peanut Man", so this quick read gave me a wee bit more insight.

    Good and interesting little biography about a man I didn't know a lot about. This book made me want to look out more information about this inspiring man. Brilliant.

    An amazing man. A testament to loving God and using His gifts to benefit humanity. We should follow his humble example in our daily lives.

    An American inspiration I loved reading this book. I found the life of George Washington Carver to be richly rewarding in the reading. A truly inspirational man.

    Good book to read and use as a discussion starter with upper elementary school students when talking about growing up in the United States in different places and diverse families. I'm glad to have the time to read and explore different genres and books useful for lots of purposes.
