Making It Past Polio and Despair

by Richard Maus

He knew that one day he would tell his story. But not until now. This is a man's story of his childhood spent back and forth from his supportive parents to the Gillette Children's Hospital. He persevered, not without struggles, and grew to be a successful high school teacher, father, and friend. The book is a narrative with photos and interesting xrays and hospital records. The title says it all.
