I wish to sincerely thank Mrs. Chong for the work she has done to highlight the lives and work of blind people who have come before us. I just finished reading this compilation and learned a great deal about the struggles previous generations of blind men and women faced. Their strength and fortitude have paved the way for those of us who live now. Many of these so called ordinary people turned out to be not so ordinary. Mrs. Chong provides a well-researched, thoughtful and compelling look at these previous generations. Younger generations of blind and sighted students could learn a great deal from them. Thank you for documenting their history.

Very interesting read, a lot of things I never thought about being a sighted person myself. I recommend reading this well written book.
