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 ). nbsp; "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.
