About the Author

Jack Schaefer was born in Cleveland, Ohio, and graduated from Oberlin College in 1929 with a major in English. Schaefer's first success as a novelist came in 1949 with his memorable novel SHANE, set in Wyoming, which was made into a critically acclaimed movie and also a series. He continued writing successful westerns, selling his home in Connecticut and moving to Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1955. In 1975 Schaefer received the Western Literature Association's Distinguished Achievement award.

Reviews

Jack Schaefer is not a writer of conventional westerns ... [his work is] tautly and tightly constructed ... [with] additional ingredients that make for complex storytelling - New York TimesIf you read only one western in your life, this is the oneThe author has created a tale which captivates the reader's attention from beginning to end. His skill in depicting a character, a situation, or a mood, with a minimum of words, gives the story a tightly-woven quality often lacking in present-day novels. The book almost demands completion in one sitting - Library JournalIts tension is of the uncoiling spring variety. It's as clean as a hound's tooth - Saturday Review of LiteratureSHANE is a work of literature first and a western second - St George Daily SpectrumA real superiority here - Kirkus
