Read full description of the books:
What a beautiful story! My grandmother was born in 1901 and had polio as a young teen (we think that's the right age). Her father was a doctor and had heard about some unorthodox treatments that were being done for polio victims and tried them on her. They involved heat and massage, so I am now assuming these were the Sister Kenny treatments that the author referred to. My grandmother made a full recovery. I'm fascinated that my great grandfather found out about these treatments so early and used them (they were started in 1903 in Australia and didn't come to the U.S. until 1940). I would love to learn more about my great grandfather and what he did exactly, but I guess I'll never know. I'm thankful to have read Peg Kehret's account and get a little glimpse into what polio must have been like for my grandmother. As an aside about the book, one of the things I love the best are the pictures and the update at the end about the friends she made along the way. She brings it all to life so clearly that you long to know how it all turns out.
