Remembering the Soos

In a series of eight essays South Dakota state poet David Allan Evans recalls his boyhood in Sioux City, focusing on girls, guys, grown-ups; the class A baseball team, the Sioux City Soos; the Sioux City Journal, where his father worked as a pressman; and the Armour meatpacking plant, where he worked during his college years.

“Every page of this vivid book is full of characters, people you won’t forget, and who luck under other names in your own childhood memories.”—Rapid City Journal

“Enchanting.”—Argus Leader

“There is a palpable verisimilitude to [Evans’] writing that will have readers plumbing their own memories for similar incidents or emotions.”—Booklist
