Thanks for sharing this. I read somewhere that you were an avid reader……share some more with us! I only read business books and biographies…..and a few “self help” books.

OK, I had to look this one up. I expected that this was going to be a lesser-known novel from the 19th century, but now I’m better educated. I like reading myself, and am currently reading a 4th volume of a lengthy biography series on Lyndon B Johnson. I’m also working on the Richard Burton translation of “1001 Arabian Nights”. Getting back to the Fergus novel, it sounds like it would be an interesting read though I think my next book will be Don Quixote, as that I’d like to catch up on some classics.

This sounds like a real good read, something i don’t do enough of these days lol… used to really enjoy reading Louis L’Amour western novels.

US Truck stops have the best magazines! 🙂

it used to be that they sold these paperbacks to the truckers for about 25 cents a piece, not sure if they still do. hell of a deal and some i have are very old…way cool.

Gotta say one thing…..my hanging around here is exposing me to some new possibilities in reading and music. I’m looking up things to learn more about what I read here, and I think I’m going to try a Louie Lamour novel. Hell, Tombstone’s just down the road from me…..so why not read a western? Re truck stops, some of them have great food, and if you’re passing thru Tucson I highly recommend the TTT truck stop. It’s independent, and has been in commission since 1950….well before the interstate it’s next to was made into an interstate.

“Shane” is a good book and a great movie if you like westerns.

i named a dog i had as a kid shane, after seeing that movie with my dad. it starred alan ladd. my dad was big-time into westerns, he even had a western style revolver and holster that he would put on from time to time practice shooting and being a quick draw! we lived in woods and not in a city and it was our land so there was no problem with the law back then. lol

Did the tv show “Gunsmoke” air in Canada? It was huge in the US in the 60’s and 70’s.

Your thinking of Bonanza , Myles ,
Gunsmoke was James Arness . Two great shows .
August 22, 2013 at 9:00 pm
Bonanza was good…..as was “Wild, wild, West”………..and this is embarrassing but yes, I liked “Little House on the Prairie”……can’t believe I just admitted that!!!

After gunsmoke “festus” went around visited with ill folks in hospitals. He came through our local hospital in North Central Missouri farm country….population 6,731……I’ve no idea how he ended up there!
