No one ever forgets their first taste of freedom.

Gandhi's famous Salt March shook the foundations of the British Empire and the world, showing the strength of a people united in peace to fight for freedom. Gandhi's march had a significant effect on changing world and British attitudes towards Indian independence, and inspired the use of non-violence in other protest movements, like the US Civil Right movement. You'll never forget Elizabeth Cody Kimmel's heartwarming, insightful account or Guiliano Ferri's stunning illustrations of the event seen through the eyes of a child inspired by Gandhi's vision for a better world.
