    I loved this book when I, as a teenager, found this old book for nearly nothing. I remember being moved by her writing about optimism, knowing she did´nt have an easy life. This book tought me something about life, when I needed it. The cover is very nice I think.

    The titel is "My key of life - optimism, an essay by Hellen Keller". In the book you can read "London: Ibister & Company, 15 6 16 Tavistock St. Covent Garden 1904." It is printed by Ballantyne, hanson & Co".
