Just Joe: Baseball's Natural, as told by his wife highlights the extraordinary career of South Carolina's Joseph Jefferson Jackson, more well-known as "Shoeless Joe." Related from the imagined perspective of his wife Katie, Just Joe examines the life of a couple devoted to baseball, and more importantly, to each other.

Jackson's career, especially his batting prowess and his involvement in the 1919 World Series "Black Sox" scandal, is well known. However, what's largely unknown is how Joe and Katie Jackson gracefully weathered the criticism and condemnation from fans and the first commissioner of the game, Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis. With a quiet dignity, Jackson relied on his fabled Black Betsy bat, scorching "blue darters" and winning the hearts of fans long after his major league days were over. Through it all, Katie Jackson offers a sympathetic portrait of her man and their life and times.

Just Joe: Baseball's Natural is also available as an ebook on Amazon.com for the Kindle.

Thomas K. Perry is also the author of the play, Shoeless Joe, which premiered in 1995.
