Memoirs of Childhood and Youth reveals the more salient childhood moments that forever shape one of the most brilliant minds of the last century. Few individuals in history possess the skill, knowledge, and drive to obtain doctoral degrees in theology, philosophy, music, and medicine. Albert Schweitzer acheived this and more. He took his knowledge and philosophy to the people of equatorial Africa where he served as a missionary doctor in the jungle of Gabon for fifty years. From humble beginnings as a child in Gunsbach we see the sowing of seeds that would eventually blossom into Schweitzer's famous Reverence for Life philosophy. Delightful and readable, Memoirs is a treasured classic. A wonderful book for all ages, particularly for youth as a starting place for Schweitzer study. Filled with pictures-- you won't be disappointed!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
