    was my favorite book in 1955. Of course, as a product of those times and half Southerner to boot, I didn't see it as racist. I loved the story of the brother, was it Martin Pauley, searching heaven and earth to find his little sister Debbie who had been taken by the Indians - and finally succeeding. (No spoilers here!)

    What I liked most about the book, besides the loving family torn apart so appallingly, was the sense of place and attunement with nature. Alan LeMay was the author. I'll have to look it up again to see if it has held up well.

    I read this long before my data banks were full, so I remember it as though it were yesterday, as in cosmic terms it was. Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

    As for the TV shows, how could you forget Rawhide? When Clint Eastwood was young (now that was a long time ago).

      to see grandbabies so I just got home.

      I have to admit the truth...I have never heard of Rawhide.  

      I did admit in one comment to liking him in Paint Your Wagon back when he was younger, too. :)  

      Thanks for coming by!

        was on every week for years. I have always wondered why it has not been sold on CD like every other TV show. Eastwood's character, Rowdy Yates, was a young, impulsive dude; the trail ride manager had his work cut out for him in this one.

        Oh, yes, there were lots and lots of cows....
