Do any of you like to read westerns? I do. I also like to watch old timey western movies. Since the lockdown, I have been reading a lot. I have read The Lady of the Lake and Lochinvar by Sir Walter Scott. I have read Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, and a lot more. But, I love westerns and I have read a lot of them lately. Louis Lamour is a favorite author. I like Reilly's Luck, Brionne, Hondo, and many more. My favorite western used to be Shane, by Jack Schaefer. It is still in my top two. However, I read the Virginian by Owen Wister, again, after more than 45 years. He had consulted Theodore Roosevelt on the book, repeatedly. I laughed so hard in some places, that I had to stop reading. The whole story is majestic and beautiful. It has action, of course, and it has a long drawn out romance. The scenery it describes is beautiful. I think it may be my favorite. I think I am old enough to appreciate it, now.
Which ones do you all like?
