This engaging introduction to Gandhi will show you how
one person can accomplish big things.
This colorful book offers you a window into the world of Mahatma Gandhi, one of the most amazing people of the twentieth century. You will learn about Gandhi’s life—from his time as a student in London to his work for equality in South Africa and India—and his methods of peaceful, but not passive, resistance to injustice.
Through engaging biography, activities inspired by Gandhi’s values and beliefs, and the words of Gandhi himself, Gandhi: India’s Great Soul will show you how to achieve your goals through persistence and persuasion rather than through violence and fighting.
