A braille tale,
This review is from: The Country of the Blind (Pocket Penguins 70's) (Paperback)
A right little page turner: an intrepid explorer stumbles by accident on an isolated community hidden among the high peaks of the Andes, living the life of ease. And the catch, of course, is that everyone of them has gone blind. The adventurer rubs his hands as he recalls the old proverb 'In the country of the blind, the man with one eye is a king'. But he quickly finds he's not to have everything his own way. A great yarn, which makes you think about how our eyes shape our minds. A couple of other shorter Wells stories are thrown in for good measure.
