Small Steps: The Year I Got Polio
Peg Kehret (au)
Hardcover (no d.j.)
Before a polio vaccine was developed, polio killed or crippled thousands of people each year. The polio virus attacks the nerve cells which control the muscles. In 1949 there were 42,033 cases reported in the U.S. There was only one case diagnosed that year in Austin, MN: a 12-year-old girl, Peg Schulze, the author of this book. There is no cure for polio. When Peg began to write about her polio days, she was astonished by the intense emotions these memories brought with them. Those months, more than any other time of her life, molded her personality. Although Peg used fictional techniques to write this book, she can verify her feelings about everything that happened -- & feelings are the most important part of her story.
