    Alan Le May's The Searchers. A well-told, picturesque story of men determined to search for years through the plains West for a girl taken by Comanche. By picturesque I mean the land is a vital part of the story.

    The movie version differs in making the older Amos the main character when the younger Martin is in the book, and because of that the ending.

    Great movie

    Book on Booker T Washington and Teddy Roosevelt and how they became friends. Learned a lot about Washington. Roosevelt was a dynamo. Hell, so was Washington building Tuskegee from the ground up. With their hands and bricks they made.
    Reading new B. Streisand book. 960 pages. What an amazing talent she was. Took the world by storm in the early sixties.
