A Quote on Going Westward

Westward the land lay empty. Behind them the rising sun threw their long shadows before them across the wind-rippled grass. They were shadows not soon to fade from these virgin lands, but they were to lie long upon the plain and the mountains, darkening the retreat of the Indian. -Louis L’Amour Westward the Tide

 

Louis L’Amour is an amazing writer. If you have not read any of his books you are missing out. Most of them are westerns but he wrote other stuff too, and the way he comments on people’s movements and actions is unique.
