Shane tells the story of how one man of unyielding virtue can defeat evil and inspire the best in others. The plot follows the Starretts, a family of homesteaders, who encounter and befriend an enigmatic man, Shane. They come to love him, and he later helps them resist the forceful tactics of a rancher who tries to bully them off their land. Shane is a quiet, self-possessed, and capable man with a mysterious background. The story’s narrator, a young Bob Starrett, looks up to Shane and learns from him the qualities that define a good man’s character. . . .
