Modern day kids Annie and Nico go on a magical history tour to find out how modern-day India became the way it is. Much of which is due to one man who practiced peaceful resistance... Gandhi. This man, a tireless defender against oppression, fought all his life for independence from the British colonists who ruled India. He practiced non-violent demonstrations and went on hunger strikes to help bring attention to his cause. Experience Gandhi's long path to independence with Annie and Nico as the helpful guides in this pocket-sized book.
