Call Me Joseph is a story, up close and personal, about a boy who grew into manhood against the backdrop of an early 1900s Kansas farm. Change, common to his generation, was his teacher. With courage, and never afraid to fight, "Joesy" learned to meet challenges head-on. On the other hand, Sister Eligiana was never too far away to instill humility in the young schoolboy. He tempted fate riding inside buggy wheels, and as Joe, the man, made his ride inside boxcars during the Great Depression. His journey toward the golden years is one of true grit. Call Me Joseph is as rich as homemade potato soup, peppered with moments of good humor and common sense.
