KIRKUS REVIEW

A classic touch to this story of fiddlefooted, withdrawn, softspoken Shane who drifts in, stays on with Wyoming homesteader Starrett. Through the eyes of a youngster, Starrett's son, this tells how Shane- devoted to the Starretts- dangerous to their enemies- assumes Starrett's fight against the man who is trying to force him out of the valley, shoots it out alone... A real superiority here, narrative and literary.
