"My most humorous, as well as my most embarrassing experience, have long since been forgotten, and believe it or not, the blind land in some very crazy situations." Memoir of a blind woman who had grown up in the mountains of western North Carolina and lost her sight as a child (she accidently pierced her eye with a fork); her husband was placed in a mental institution at the outbreak of World War II and Hampton took a job running a news stand in a hotel. Amid the somewhat formulaic piety, there is much here on accessibility and suggestions for improvement in services for the blind. Owner ink signature on the front free endpaper.
