'Shane' by Jack Schaefer W/Guest Nikos Sotirakopoulos




On today’s episode of Troubadour Talks, I chat with a host of the Daily Objective, Nikos Sotirakopoulos, about the novel by Jack Schaefer “Shane.”


One critic of Shane has expressed, correctly, that if you are to read one Western novel, let it be Shane.


Nikos and I discuss the straightforward plot and then have a deep discussion of the characters and their relationships. As this is a frontier story, like all Westerns, we will talk about life on the frontier, how it is different from life in a fully civilized location, and most importantly, how manliness is required in these frontier lands.


We also talk about the fraternity among men and how to earn the manly love of your brothers. This was an enjoyable conversation with a true brother in arms!
