Death Comes for the Archbishop by Willa Cather. Brilliant.
On my TBR list. I read Cather for the first time a couple of years ago and have just fallen in love with this writer.
You’ll love this book. It’s quietly amazing in the depth of character development. I loved both main characters so much. This is one of a very few books that made me cry.
@Gail, I look forward to reading it. I keep hearing amazing things about it from other people so it definitely needs to be my next book!
The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven, Sherman Alexie.
The Tin Star
This is the book upon which the.movie High Noon was based.
My Antonia by Willa Cather
This is the third book of her Great Plains Trilogy, I think O Pioneers is the first, The Song of the Lark is the second. I have all 3 on my tbr list. Must get at them, I love her writing.
I have read all three books in the great plains trilogy. My Antonia I absolutely loved and have read it now three times. O Pioneers was very good and I liked it a lot. The Song of the Lark I really struggled with. There were parts of it that were amazing but as a whole it was a difficult book for me to get through. But glad I read it. I have bought several other Cather novels and they are on my TBR list.
Main Street by Sinclair Lewis.
I love the books of Sinclair Lewis.
O Pioneers and My Antonia by Willa Cather.
Knights of the Range
Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee
Kathy Adam’s is recommending some great books… pay attention!
Thank you, Tom.
@Kathy when she you got Portis and Ferber there was no sense in me adding to the story.
@Belinda A favourite of mine too.
I loved the character Gus McCrae, possibly one of my favourite male characters of all time…. neck and neck with Will McLean from Pat Conroy’s ‘The Lords of Discipline’ ?
Gus is my favorite character also.
(Wow, that rogue apostrophe is invading everywhere now! Maybe we should just spell it “apo’strophe.”) ?
