Gunsight Pass by William MacLeod Raine
Rate this book
Clear rating
What a fun book. I like Raine's style. Quick storytelling with strong, bold strokes. His characters are a bit flat, but they are adequate to the story. This is like watching an old Western, one made in the 1920s, which is when this was written.

J.R.R. Tolkien
“Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisioned by the enemy, don't we consider it his duty to escape?. . .If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we're partisans of liberty, then it's our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!”
J.R.R. Tolkien

Margaret Mitchell
“Well, my dear, take heart. Some day, I will kiss you and you will like it. But not now, so I beg you not to be too impatient.”
Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

George S. Patton Jr.
“If everybody is thinking alike, then somebody isn't thinking.”

“If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.”
Oscar Wilde

“Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society.”
