We read Shane in ninth grade. I disliked it because I so disliked the teacher!

I'm using this for the reason why I detested The House of the Seven Gables when I was fourteen.

*Lonesome Dove* is by far my favourite ever western novel, Outlander. Must have read it half a dozen times. I did see the TV series and it was excellent, but no movie could ever do justice to the book itself. Cheers. Neil
Thanks for the reminder Neil. I am putting it on my TBR list as we speak .

No matter how many times I've read Lonesome Dove I still get a little misty-eyed at a couple of points in the story. (OK, I cry like a baby. )

Yup, 'Lonesome Dove' gets me like that, too. Also 'Little Big Man' mentioned earlier is a superb book that -- great as the Dustin Hoffman movie was -- just dazzles as a book. Neil

When I was young,my favorite western series was the Tom Buchanan series, written by William Ard (pen name: Jonas Ward ). Fun fact- Robert Silverberg pinch hit for him once-yes, THAT Robert Silverberg.

Thanks for the tip, stonetools. I actually think there may be a few of his books in an old box of westerns I inherited (lots of L'Amour and Max Brand and similar stuff). I'll have to check. Is there any info on which story/book might actually be Silverberg's writing?

Diap hits the nail on the head with the "Lonesome Dove" books - excellent.

How about Monte Walsh ? Or am going mad and saw the film.......

And "Shane" is a great read anyway.

I must do a bit of research here - I'm feeling the tug of the sagebrush.......

It was one of the best.

That book seems to be universally loved amongst Western readers. It comes up every time I ask for a good place to start reading Westerns myself. I should get around to it soon.
It's part of a two volume collection of Mr. Grey's books here at MR. Happy reading.

I just noticed that BooksOnBoard has Little Big Man by Thomas Berger for $11.99. Published in 1964, it's the reminiscence of a 100+ year old resident of a nursing home who claims to be the only survivor of Custer's Last Stand.

Needed a break last night and watched a re-run of 'Shane' (1953, I think). Never read the book, but the movie was a terrific reminder of how I felt about the Wild West as a Saturday morning cinema addict as a kid.

And it was my only brush with the cops. I was seven years old at the time, watching the film on my own. When it ended, I hid under my seat until the next showing an hour or so later ... and so on ...

My folks were frantic and reported my disappearance to the police. I was nabbed half way through the last performance at about 10:00pm.

See ... I'm a hardened outlaw, too!

Cheers. Neil

I read all of the Buchanan books.
Another book I liked was Shoot him on Sight by William Colt MacDonald. I still have the original that I bought in 1966. I wish you could get it and the Buchanan books as ebooks.
I also liked Donald Hamilton's Westerns. He is most know for his Matt Helm Spy Series.
