    Joe Harper tells his amazing life story as a sharecropper's son with clarity and honesty. He doesn't hide the hurt caused when his mother leaves the family. He shares the happiness that he and his brothers and sisters glean with their father's loving care. His descriptions of capturing fish for supper in a pond filled with poisoness snakes is heart-stopping. He speaks truth about life in segregated Mississippi schools. The book provides a profound example of how life and love can survive and even thrive in harsh times. That love carried forward alters the hearts of those who come to know Joe Harper or read his book.

    This is a must read!!!! The candor and truism is breath taking. As you read about this story you come to grips with the passion and care that the writer takes to allow you to walk in the the path of not only hardships, but appreciation for opportunities in life. You will not be disappointed with this read. Someday this will be a classic!!! Curtis A. Colleton, DVM, DACVP, PMP

    Joe Harper’s Delta Memories is a story of inspiration and determination. It’s a story of joy and sadness. It’s a story about growing up as one of 12 children in absolute poverty in the North Mississippi Delta during the 1960’s. It’s a story about the value of strong family ties, and of a personal faith. It’s a story about dealing with and overcoming the imposed limitations of segregation and racism. In short, it’s a story that deserves to be read. Early in the book, Joe states “Self pity is a worthless state of mind for anyone.” (pg 9) As Joe takes the reader from his very first memories as a child through his thoughts on his current health struggles, Joe repeatedly demonstrates this attitude. I have no doubt that Joe will use the strength and determination he demonstrated in his early life as he confronts his current health challenges.

    Excellent words from the heart! Joe provides the reader with a interesting yet thought provoking story of his life. While not a pleasant time for our country it is important for us to recall these times. Joe's ability to let us in is an inspiration.

    Fantastic book! The author does a great job taking the reader back into history with him. He takes the reader to a place and time that we must never forget about. I enjoyed the authors ability to share his story with humor and pain. I found myself not wanting to put the book down and eager to learn more. This is a very heartfelt book that touches the soul. I highly recommend this book. Many Blessings to you Joe!
