But she learned to confront adversity and accept the "special position" she had been bestowed on this earth. Given up by her Mother when she was six weeks old, she was raised by her loving Grandmother, who struggled to provide her with the bare necessities. She earned the right to hate the world!

There will likely never be another woman taller than "gentle giantess" Sandy Allen. She has appeared in the Guinness Book of World Records since 1976 and is one of the most recognized women in the world. Enjoy the behind the scenes look into her many television show appearances and travels in this, her only authorized life story.
