Riassunto: "PLEASE, BILL, DON'T SHOOT!" A shotgun blast changes young Joe Overby's life forever. After his father shoots the county sheriff, three-year-old Joe sets out on an unimaginable series of adventures. Just A Dumb Kid From Nowhere takes you back to Depression-era Mississippi. Join Joe as he lives life in an orphanage, in a series of sharecropper's shacks, in a log cabin, and on a farm. Learn what it was like to pick cotton by hand, to harvest sorghum, to make molasses, and to work the wheat harvest during World War II. With Joe, you'll share in the joys, yearnings, and desperation of a growing boy as he discovers the world and his place in it. Through this anything-but-dumb kid, you'll laugh and cry, always rooting for the boy who is determined to make something of himself. If you want to experience life in the rural South during this formative time in America's history-the food, clothing, culture, and customs -Just A Dumb Kid From Nowhere will take you there.
L'autore: Joe Overby was born in Reform, Mississippi, in 1931. He served in the U.S. Navy aboard the battleship Missouri during the Korean War. Overby and his wife, Jean, have raised five children and now live in Neptune Beach, Florida.
