The western is a dieing story that is vividly returned to life in this timeless novel that centers on the difficulty of change.
I use this book every year in my classroom for the depth and complexity offered by this tale of one mans search for a new life. The constantly changing plot is challenging for my GATE students, and a tremendous learning opportunity for all of my scholars.
Check it out and see if you can find out what Shane is all about. Don't let this very important portion of American history disappear. It is not a story of guns, rather a story of a desire for life in a difficult time.
Hate Westerns? Read it anyways. Love Westerns? Definitely read it. It's exciting and touching, and the ending is marvelous. I had an affinity for all the characters, and, by the time the book was over...wanted more, yet was strangely satisfied. Great book.
