Great book for introducing the legacy of Gandhi to young readers.


Analysis of this book from Enotes:

Eaton attempts to portray the spiritual and political leadership qualities of Gandhi in a personal and positive manner. Eaton wants young readers to understand the many sacrifices and trials that Gandhi and his family endured as they struggled to make people free of their unwarranted fears and prejudices. Frequently separated from his beloved family, he studied or worked hard to prove himself worthy of the task. The spiritual awakening that Gandhi experienced in England became the focus for his life and work. Eaton’s portrayal of Gandhi as a self-sacrificing, spiritual individual is illustrated throughout the text. He served as an example for his fellow Indians and for all the citizens of the world.
