Ray, the farmer, is a man in his late 30's who's afraid he will never get a chance to do anything exciting in his life, so this could be his only chance. Another regret Ray lives with is that he never apologized to his father for being a disagreeable and impolite son who walked out of the house at 17. Will he ever see Joe Jackson? Will he every get to say sorry to his father or is he really aiming at apologizing to himself? I think you should read SHOELESS JOE to find out. (Joe C., 8th grade student, Rundlett Middle School, Concord, New Hampshire)
