Heather Green Wooten draws on extensive archival research as well as interviews conducted over a five-year period with Texas polio survivors and their families. This is a detailed and intensely human account of not only the epidemics that swept Texas during the polio years, but also of the continuing aftermath of the disease for those who are still living with its effects.
Christine Brown is the Executive Producer of The Bookmark and Publicity and Advertising Manager at Texas A&M University Press
