About this audiobook

"A truly, well written, must-read book!" - Reader review
A truly unique, and groundbreaking Sports Fiction, and Dystopian Book for Young Adults on up, suitable for Young Adults (YA) and adult fiction lovers everywhere!
The Death and Resurrection of Baseball: Echoes from a Distant Past, is getting great reviews for its unique Sports Fiction storyline, and what-ifs:
What if a Second Civil War is the endpoint in the current trajectory of America's divisiveness?
What if early warning signs of baseball's popularity continue downward?
What if among the personal and cultural casualties of a Civil War II, baseball was to die as a sport?
The Death and Resurrection of Baseball take those what-if propositions and transports the reader 140 years from now into the futuristic United States of America to the year 2166. A United States that is far from our current recognition.
In the year 2166, a post-Second Civil War United States of America is finally back on its feet. Among the countless personal and cultural casualties of the war, the sport of baseball has been dead for over a hundred years.
12-year-old Joe Scott lives in the northern Illinois city of McHenry and goes exploring in the woods one day in a no man's land that a hundred years earlier was the site of the bloodiest battle of the Second Civil War. While there, he discovers a relic from the distant past, from before the war. It sparks a search for its meaning.
Little does he know that the wheels of Providence have been unwittingly set in motion, leading to a stunning discovery in Dyersville, Iowa.
This second discovery has a direct connection with the relic found in McHenry. As events unfold, Joe finds himself at the center of the rediscovery of the sport of baseball, long lost and forgotten by the ravages of time and the lingering aftereffects of the Second Civil War.
