It was just before midnight on the second day of Ranger School. I was crawling, nose-deep, through a slurry of red Georgia clay beneath a low-hanging web of barbed wire. The past 36 hours had been a blur of nonstop physical activity and every nerve ending, muscle fiber and bone in my body was screaming at me to quit.

And, I was starting to agree with them.

   For more than ten years, One Book One Siouxland has brought the community together to enjoy great books and quality programming that expands the reading experience. Today, I’m excited to recommend the 2017 One Book One Siouxland selection Shoeless Joe by the late W.P. Kinsella. Written while Kinsella attended the Iowa Writers’ Workshop at the University of Iowa, and originally published in 1982, this much beloved and magical baseball novel continues to resonate with readers of all ages.
