Publisher Comments:

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.

“Theres something about him,” Mother said. “Something . . . dangerous . . .”

“Hes dangerous all right,” Father said, “but not to us.”

“Hes like one of these here slow burning fuses,” the mule skinner said.

“Quiet . . . so quiet you forget its burning till it sets off a hell of a blow of trouble. And theres trouble brewing.”

Jack Schaefer is best known for this timeless classic.

Synopsis:

A gunman helps the homesteaders break the power of the Wyoming cattlemen.

Anglophile, January 2, 2010 (view all comments by Anglophile)
Shane is one of those books that I return to time and again. The language is simple, but evokes a changing frontier and Shane's bittersweet struggle to leave behind a life of violence. No polemics or self-conscious internalizing here - the characters' actions say more then their words. And this withholding draws in the reader to try to understand their past and present. This story is more than just a Western. Like all great tales, it goes beyond mere genre.
