KIRKUS REVIEW

The value of this fine biography of the famous Negro botanist is enhanced by some fascinating information about the plant world and some of the uses to which plant materials may be put. The story of Dr. Carver's rise from humble beginnings to one of the greatest American scientists is an inspiring one, and the narrative follows, without fanfare, the progress of the scientist through early obstacles to education, pioneering at Tuskegee Institute, work in experimentation, to fame and his contributions to the South and the nation. Comprehensive, anecdotal, and above all, accurate, this is a biography of unusual interest to young scientists.
