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.
Jack Schaefer is best known for this timeless classic."

Texts are almost always richer than visuals, Shane is no exception. The movie itself is highly regarded, as one of the best Western movies ever made. This novel on which the movie was based on, however, seems having more depth and stronger resonance to readers. It's a beautifully written, heart-warming novel that will be read for a long time.
