The Friendship of a Good Book

The Cherokee Trail

“Never read me many books.” He paused, embarrassed. “Always figured to, sometime. I seen a few around. One time, a long while back, I worked some in a store back in Missouri. They had all manner of books. Folks goin’ West used to buy ‘em. I just couldn’t believe there was so many folks who could not only read but wanted to.”

“If one has a book, Mr. Boone, one is never alone. They will talk to you when you want to listen, and when you tire of what they saying, you just close the book. It will be waiting for you when you come back to it.” – Exchange between Mary Breydon and Temple Boone in The Cherokee Trail by Louis L’Amour
