Summary
He went to Canada in the 1960's to avoid the draft. Now, back in the USA, he has a vision: build a ballpark in an Iowa cornfield "if you build it they will come." Two who do are the tragic ballplayer, Joe Jackson and the lead's father. This affecting novel was the basis of the 'Field of dreams', Kevin Costner's landmark 1980's film
Summary
One day while out in his corn field, Iowa farmer Ray Kinsella hears a voice saying, "If you build it, he will come." "He," of course, is Ray's hero, Shoeless Joe Jackson. "It" is a baseball stadium, which Ray carves out of his corn field
