Alongside this short, uncomplicated, riveting story of a small family homesteading in the American West and the violent conflict between the farmers and ranchers in their small community is another beautiful, uplifting vision of a Christ figure in the person of a stranger who comes to town to stand on the side of righteousness, purity, kindness, and love. This is a story suitable for tweens through adults and will provide lots to discuss.

Texts are almost always richer than visuals, Shane is no exception. The movie itself is highly regarded, as one of the best Western movies ever made. This novel on which the movie was based on, however, seems having more depth and stronger resonance to readers. It's a beautifully written, heart-warming novel that will be read for a long time.
