More than just a biography, this is a true story of inspiration on how a poor, uneducated person can become one of the most productive and inspirational forces in society.  For anyone looking for an inspirational story, for historians, teachers and students, and for young and old alike this DVD featuring stunning photography and a superb original music score is certain to be watched again and again.

We enjoyed this well done DVD and marveled along with Carver at the wonders of Creation.  What an inspiration to be born into slavery and blossom into leading scientific study in reviving the southern soil that was raveged by cotton with the alternative crop of peanuts.  AND then to be lead by God to discover so many uses for peanuts!

My 8th and 5th graders took note of the blending of the Bible and science and how Carver made the two work together.  Sadly though, Carver did not believe in a literal 6 day Creation.

Included on Marshall Publishing's website is a free study guide with discussion questions to accompany this DVD.
