Shane (Shane) Shane is the title character of Jack Schaefer’s 1949 novel, Shane, but most people’s image of Shane is that of the iconic figure played by Alan Ladd in the 1953 Paramount western directed by George Stevens. Shane, a stranger, arrives in a territory of Wisconsin that is going through conflict between the cattle barons (black hats) and the homesteaders (white hats). He, a crack gunslinger and experienced cowboy, becomes involved in the battle on behalf of the homesteaders, especially for the sake of the Starrett family, for whom he works as a farmhand. He eventually steps in to single-handedly win the battle for the side of Good, and rides off into the sunset. We are left, like the young Starrett son, with a sense of having been in the presence of contained greatness, bereft at losing him, and better for having known him.
