Golda : Golda Meir, the romantic years by Ralph G Martin( Book )

8 editions published between 1983 and 1988 in English and held by 1,188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a biography about Israeli politician Golda Meir (1898-1978), who became that country's first female prime minister. In this account, the author strips away Meir's tough-minded politician's exterior to expose a lonely, tender-hearted woman, aching for love. Emphasizing her inadequacies as a wife and mother and cataloging her alleged lovers, he traces Meir's life through 1948. The narrative follows feisty "Goldie" from her first eight years in Kiev where she was born in 1898 to Milwaukee's lower west side where her family settled, through her early Zionist activity in Denver, her migration to Palestine and her increasingly prominent role as champion of Israeli statehood

The three lives of Helen Keller by Richard Harrity( Book )

13 editions published between 1962 and 1964 in English and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stricken by a strange disease when she was almost nineteen months old that left her so that she could not hear or see, Helen Keller began a life of loneliness in the sudden silence and blackness of a strange world that cut her off from all she knew and loved. Anne Sullivan arrived at the Keller homestead in Alabama early in 1887 and through patience and perseverance finally roused the first spark in the child's mind by teaching her the meaning of words attached to things and how to talk and express her thoughts with her fingers. The arrival of Anne Sullivan on March 3, 1887 was the beginning of Helen Keller's second life. But Helen Keller's third life is the most important and the dearest to her heart -- her tireless efforts over the past four decades in creating better understanding of the deaf and the blind everywhere on earth, and in raising money to help them. - p. 7-8
