About this product
- DescriptionWhen Little Joe Stout survives the car accident that took his parents' lives, he is sent to live with his maternal grandparents in the small town of Round Rock, Tennessee. Orphaned and missing his Texas home, Little Joe is reluctant to adapt. But his grandparents, especially his grandmother, are up to the challenge of raising him despite their own struggles. Soon, childhood friendships are forged in the oddball duo of Sugar and Bobby, and-with the help of a new canine companion-Little Joe begins to see that his new home offers the comfort and love he thought was lost forever. Set against the drama of World War II and the first sparks of the civil rights movement, Little Joe's new home is a microcosm of America in the 1940s. A frightening incident with a Chinese motorist traveling on the wrong side of town, the migration of troops across the countryside, and a frank discussion of Jim Crow laws are just a few of the local events mirroring the radio broadcasts that bring the news of the day into his grandmother's kitchen. Little Joe begins a four-part series from Michael E. Glasscock III that explores the intricate social cloth of Round Rock, Tennessee.
- Author BiographyFor the first eight years of his life Michael E Glasscock III lived on his grandfather's cattle ranch, about five miles south of the small community of Utopia, Texas. Michael decided to study medicine, and he graduated from the University of Tennessee Medical School at age twenty-four. Nashville, Tennessee, was the site of Dr Glasscock's otology/neurotology practice, where he was associated with Vanderbilt University as a clinical professor, and where he continues to be part of the faculty as an adjunct professor. Dr Glasscock retired from full-time clinical practice in 1997 and moved back to Texas where he continues to work as a consultant for three major medical device companies. He now lives in Austin, Texas, and performs surgery at the Glasscock Hearing Implant Center in Houston.
