Summary
Seldom has society come full circle in the cycle of a disease - from illness, to epidemic, to cure. Polio is the 20th century's most notable exception. Every baby boomer remembers collecting dimes in their dime cards, hearing the success of the Salk shot, and lining up for oral vaccines taken in a sugar cube. But few know the story of how polio came to America in 1916 and grew into the frightening epidemics of the 1940's and 50's when the disease crippled tens of thousands of children every summer. Led by a president crippled by the virus himself, the battle against polio was the first, and perhaps the most successful, fight against a disease. This fascinating story is told using photographs and films along with interviews with polio survivors, their families, nurses, doctors, and community leaders
