Through extensive research and scholarly detective work, Catherine J. Kudlick and Zina Weygand have rescued from obscurity this intriguing woman and the remarkable story of her life and tragic death, giving readers a rare look into a world recorded by an unlikely historical figure." "Reflections is one of the earliest recorded manifestations of group solidarity among people with the same disability, advocating self-sufficiency and independence on the part of blind people, encouraging education for all blind children, and exploring gender roles for both men and women. Resolutely defying the sense of "otherness" which pervades discussions of disability, Husson instead convinces us that blindness offers a fresh and important perspective on both history and ourselves."--Jacket." ;
