In this true Western classic Jack Schaefer tells the story of a mysterious stranger who finds himself in the Wyoming Territory joining local homesteaders in their fight to keep their land and avoid the intimidating tactics of cattle driver Luke Fletcher.
He drinks from the trough after his horse finishes. A biblical silence follows him, and people lose their senses when he looks their way. He's a man no bullet can kill. He's part attack Doberman, part heroic champion. Shane is a work of literature first and a western second.

Its tension is of the uncoiling spring variety. It's as clean as a hound's tooth. See all Editorial Reviews. Product details File Size: May 14, Sold by: English ASIN: Enabled X-Ray: Not Enabled.

This is year I have decided to read the assigned books myself so I know what she's reading, and we can talk about them and hopefully get her more engaged and have our own discussions.
I did not have hope or excitement when I picked this up for the first time, which was wrong of me. Why did I assume a western would be boring? I don't think I had even read a western before.
From the beginning I got sucked into the mystery of Shane, and then the suspense of the story as tensions and threats grew in their town. After finishing the book I watched the movie yesterday, but I felt the book was much better. Perhaps because with books you can let your imagination make the characters and setting your own. But as in life, the characters in the book show that it's not so simple to judge, and a person can change.
That sometimes the good vs bad, right vs wrong judgements aren't so simple either.
The book shows a time in our history, being that it starts in , and gives you a much more personal idea of what it was like back then. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This ranks as one of the finest novels in my considerable reading experience. Not a word wasted by the author. Spare,and exquisitely beautiful in description of the characters,the themes, and the feelings of a young boy who incorporated Shane as an additional father figure.
It is too limiting to simply describe this book as a western.

It transcends genre. It is a splendid example of the finest of American literature. No one should miss this novel. I saw the movie as a small child around five years old,and I can still remember being fascinated by the lessons taught and explained in the movie. I still watch it when I can.
However, this novel had a much more profound effect on me than the movie. It should be required reading in schools across our country. To miss this book is to miss an opportunity to read a priceless example of an American treasure. I unashamedly loved this. To my mind the quintessential western. Wouldn't be too many readers I suspect who haven't heard of Shane.
The story of a lone gunman who comes to the rescue of the Sharratt family and against unbeatable odds takes on the "bad guys" and triumphs. A simple style of writing that suited the story.

Found this one to be a bit of a "tear jerker" actually. Not a lengthy read by any means. The author managed to convey much with a minimum of fuss. Loved it to bits.
Time and money well spent. This is the first Western I've ever read, and I had no idea what to expect beyond the very vague theme of "cowboys". I really enjoyed this! Shane is told from the perspective of a young boy and at first, I thought this book would span over a larger period of his life Shane has a dark past, which is only really referenced in his ability to kick anyone and everyone's ass when necessary.
The villain of this novel is a rancher?
I definitely read the relationship between Bob's parents and Shane as bordering on polyamorous. I doubt this was intentional at the time, but they all seemed to fall in love with each other and when Bob's father thought he was going to die, he gave Shane and Bob's mother his blessing.
I was excited when I read the reviews about this book being an excellent western even for kids and as a homeschool mom snatched this up quick. I was disappointed with some of the elements in it.
It brought up real issues of land grabbing and was well written but also dove into real issues of a wife of a hard working man falling for this stranger Shane that comes along. I still prefer Louis Lamour who did an excellent job of writing a clean novel that lightly touches real relationship issues but focuses more on a great plot with historical facts well woven in.
One person found this helpful. Crisp and concise, the book tells the story of a man with a mysterious background who shows up in a Wyoming valley at the door of a homesteader. Shane spends a few months as a farm hand enjoying the hard work and the homesteader's family. At the time of his arrival, Shane needs the family and the family needs him. Shane provides brawn and companionship to the man, his wife, and, especially, the boy who is the book's narrator.
The family provides stability and respite for Shane. The story line is familiar thanks to the movie of the same name. But he always in the end comes through. My Dashboard Get Published.
