Joe’s Adventures
“Fun on the River”

What was childhood like in the past? Joseph Dougherty’s new book Joe’s Adventures: “Fun on the River” tells readers it was way different and awesome than today – and perhaps even riskier and more thrilling. The book takes the oldsters back to the 1940s in Daytona Beach and Ormond Beach, Florida where the author grew up and experienced an adventurous childhood, which serves as the inspiration for the book.
