All But One Sense by pbeaking Rated: Family Friendly starstarstarstar [Reviews - 20]
Summary:

Joe is coming of age and is becoming quite the ladies man. This is just a short story of how Adam and Hoss tamed the wild beast within, but knowing Joe, it certainly won’t be for long. It’s a short story, but comes from the heart. It was written when I lost my sister to cancer and needed a good laugh.

Summary:

Summary:  A WHB or prequel to 'Between Heaven and Earth.' Have you ever wondered what happened when Little Joe climbed Eagle's Nest as a five year old boy that could have been so traumatic it resulted, not just in a fear of falling, but in total amnesia that lasted for nearly 20 years? This is my take on what happened when Ben Cartwright was told to 'Bring Marie'.

This is about the incident that is referenced by Ben to Little Joe in the episode "Between Heaven And Earth". I originally wrote this story back in 2001.
