d. Under her guidance for one year the boy blossomed. His odd literary fancy for Don Quixote, for Scott's poems and romances she encouraged, quietly eliminating the dime novels he had read indiscriminately with these. She broke through the shell of his shyness to find out that his diffidence was not sulkiness nor his independence impudence. The boy was a dreamer. He lived largely in a world of his own, where Quentin Durward and Philip Farnum and Robert E. Lee were enshrined as heroes. From it he would emerge all hot for action, for adventure.

Of all the remote streams of influence that pour both before and after birth into the channel of our being what an insignificant few—and these only the more obvious—are traceable at all. We swim in a sea of environment and heredity are tossed hither and thither by we know not what cross currents of Fate are tugged at by a thousand eddies of which we never dream. (Excerpt)
Reviews:
  • OwerSpeed
Did not read this but want to clear it from the list. It might be good. I lost interest in older Westerns.
  • Whitegrove
This book is quite good but I found myself skipping the political stuff if it got too lengthy.... Most of Raines books are westerns but this one doesn't have a bit of that kind of lifestyle in it.
  • Fenius
It has a good context. Shows the difference in two cousins and what they stand for. The westerns have a bit more action. I think it is because I don't care for politics.
  • Yramede
The book was a good read but sort of predictable and the characters were not real enough to make the story believable.
  • Dancing Lion
One of the best fiction reads I have had the pleasure to enjoy in quite a while. The story developed smoothly with just enough suspense to maintain interest. Most enthralling for the politically savvy is the very close resemblance between the authors portrayal of politics in the early 20th century to the politics of election year 2014. It is scary similar. It tends to convince that the U.S Congress and state governments, the performance of their lawmakers have evolved not one bit over the last century. The plight of the people is so similar; the gap between the haves and have nots is identical. Riveting!
