Description
Shane, the traveller and ex-gunfighter, a mysterious gunman who enters into the life of Joe Starrett and his family and carves a place for himself in their hearts. Although he tries to leave his gunslinging past behind, refusing to even carry a gun, he decides to fight Fletcher and Wilson, the town enemies, in order to save Joe Starrett's farm.He rode into our valley in the summer of '89, a slim man, dressed in black. 'Call me Shane,' he said. He never told us more. There was a deadly calm in the valley that summer, a slow, climbing tension that seemed to focus on Shane. 'There's something about him,' Mother said. 'Something...dangerous...' 'He's dangerous all right,' Father said, '...but not to us...' 'He's like one of these here slow burning fuses,' the mule skinner said. 'Quiet...so quiet you forget it's burning till it sets off a hell of a blow of trouble. And there's trouble brewing.'The story of Shane is seen through the eyes of Bob Starrett, the farmer's boy who befriends Shane. Bob takes the reader out of the realm of adulthood. Looking at Shane and life through his eyes allows a different perspective, one of awe and reverence and one tempered by the boyishness of the Old West.

This unforgettable story of the friendship between a farm boy and a gunman struggling to escape his dark past was made into a critically acclaimed movie in 1953 that became a classic standard for Westerns. Shane, a mysterious traveller and ex-gunfighter, enters into the life of Joe Starrett and his family and carves a place for himself in their hearts. Although he tries to leave his gunslinging past behind, revealing little about himself and refusing to even carry a gun, the family senses a quiet tension about him, like a slow-burning fuse. In the end, Shane decides to fight cattle baron Luke Fletcher and hired gun Stark Wilson in order to break the power of the cattlemen over the homesteaders and save Joe Starrett's farm. The story is told through the eyes of young Bob Starrett, who regards Shane with an awe and reverence tempered by the boyishness of the Old West.
