One of the best western novels Ive ever read and Ive read most of em.
It's the story of a veteran gunfighter that seems to want to get out the "kill or be killed" life . He asks for water at the home of a farmer and his family just as some gunmen from the Big Rancher in the area rides in to "convince" the rancher to sell out.
Shane takes a liking to the farmer and stays to help out.
The story is written from the perspective of the boy.
