There was a deadly calm in the valley that summer, a slow, climbing tension that seemed to focus on Shane.
There's something about him, Mother said. Something . . . dangerous . . .
He's dangerous all right, Father said, but not to us.
He's like one of these here slow burning fuses, the mule skinner said.
Quiet . . . so quiet you forget it's burning till it sets off a hell of a blow of trouble. And there's trouble brewing.
Jack Schaefer is best known for this timeless classic.
