Bapu: The Story of Mahatma Gandhiby Waln Brown
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
This biography of the famous civil rights leader of India, Mahatma Gandhi, begins with the salt march of 1930, the same year that Time Magazine named him Man of the Year. The author then goes on to inform the reader about Gandhi's family background, his childhood influences, educational experiences and the life events that molded his character to become the creator of Satyagraha (peace force), a philosophy of nonviolent resistance to racial discrimination and other social injustices he used to gain independence for India from Great Britain. Who could have guessed that the once shy, skinny, poor student who did not stand out from the crowd would grow up to be called the father of India and the grandfather of the civil rights movements of Dr. Martin Luther King in the United States and Nelson Mandela in South Africa?
Written for students and young adult readers, this biography also includes an extensive vocabulary builder and ten thought-provoking review questions. Great for book reports and homeschoolers.
