it was amazing
bookshelves: book-group
Read in October, 2008

The Virginian was the first real Western ever written. Now, I've never read a Western novel before, but my friends in my book group convinced me that it was worth it. And was it ever! Not only are there cowboys, Indians, horse-thieves, and romance, but good old fashioned morals are woven beautifully throughout. Everyone should read this book.
Good quote: " Any full-sized man ought to own a big lot of temper. And like all his valuable possessions, he'd ought to keep it and not lose any."
