First, a reminder that my regular book reviews are now found on my blog, SKJAM! Reviews and you folks are welcome to comment or boost from there.

And now, let's see what Goodreads is recommending to me this time, based on my Western shelf. This includes Westerns, books about Westerns, and history books related to the Old West. It seems Goodreads doesn't have a thriving Western fandom, as relatively few books are suggested....

Appaloosa by Robert B. Parker

The Big Sky by A.B. Guthrie Jr.
Breakheart Pass by Alastair MacLean

Hombre by Elmore Leonard
Hondo by Louis L'Amour

Independence! by Dana Fuller Ross

Little Britches: Father and I Were Ranchers by Ralph Moody

Mr. Tucket by Gary Paulsen

The Ox-Bow Incident by Walter van Tilburg Clark

The Riders of High Rock by Louis L'Amour

Shane by Jack Schaefer
Showdown at Yellow Butte by Jim Mayo

The Time It Never Rained by Elmer Kelton
The Travels of Jaimie McPheeters by Robert Louis Taylor

The Virginian: A Horseman of the Plains by Owen Wister

The Way West by A.B. Guthrie, Jr.

I'm pretty sure I've seen most of the movie versions. Your thoughts and comments, other great Western books that got left off the list?
