    The unedited version of Stephen King's "The Stand". Lengthy, but a classic.

    I have only read it once, but I really enjoyed it. It gave very good insight into the lifestyle of the Comanches. Worth reading and recommending to folks that like history.

    I remember reading in "The Searchers" (I think) a very detailed description of the Comanche style of attack where they circled in front of their target and got closer and closer until they could leap from their horses into the middle of the pioneers/tribes they were attacking. Laying down on their horse, shooting their arrows under the pony's head as fast as a lever action rifle and that otherwordly screaming meant to disorient their prey. I can only say........."Would you hand me my brown saddle pants, please." :eek: :D

    Oooh, good one. One of the few works of fiction I still own.

    Survivors trekking across the country, shopping for a vehicle. "Hey, let's take this big freakin' diesel tow truck, might come in handy if we have to clear a roadblock." Brilliant. I still remember that. :)
