More than the inspiration for the beloved film "Field of Dreams," "Shoeless Joe" is a mythical novel about dreams, magic, life, and what is quintessentially American ("Philadelphia Inquirer").
If you build it, he will come. These mysterious words, spoken by an Iowa baseball announcer, inspire Ray Kinsella to carve a baseball diamond in his cornfield in honor of his hero, the baseball legend Shoeless Joe Jackson. What follows is both a rich, nostalgic look at one of our most cherished national pastimes and a remarkable story about fathers and sons, love and family, and the inimitable joy of finding your way home.
