    About "The Adventures of Buddy Schmitz" ... Joe "Buddy" Schmitz was born deaf in rural Nebraska, the youngest of four children. The first part of "The Adventures of Buddy Schmitz" is a memoir of his growing up in the 1940s at his home on the family farm, in a world that offered everything a boy could want, including plenty of time and room to run around or ride bikes with his friends, a nearby swimming hole with a rope swing, and older siblings that doted on him.

Fortunately, the children figure out what really happened, saving their friends and surprising their proud parents. This book makes an engros
