In my prior post Hostage Situation I used 3 men from TV series and 3 men from the books I read...
I have been an avid reader of books since I was five years old. I made the comment that my preferences had changed, but looking back they all have a common thread.
Fairy tales until age 10, age 10 to 14 along came Tarzan, Bomba and King Arthur
In the late 1950's I changed to all Westerns with a few historical novels with knights and warriors thrown in.
I love to see the cowboys walk down the street in long black coats and when the gunfire starts I am the happiest.. (NOTE: I actually prayed to turn into a boy until I was 10 and realized it would not happen. I wanted to be a cowboy Not a cowgirl.
Wyatt Earp: I just want to let you know, you're sittin in my chair.
Doc Holliday: I have two guns, one for each of you
Then along came a cowgirl I loved... in Dead in Tombstone.
|Dead in Tombstone and 2 old Stewart and Widmark movies|
Ladyhawke the movie is one of my all time favorites. Big strong man, big strong horse, big beautiful wolf dog, beautiful damsel in distress...
I wanted the horse he rode and research says it was a Friesian Stallion
that originated in the Netherlands, Rutger Hauer's native country. The breed was popular among medieval knights.
I like Big Brave men, that feel no fear, adrenalin junkies. NOTHING is to hard for them to do.. When the going gets tough, the tough get going. Think Bruce Willis.
I now am into Seal Teams, CIA and all those Initials guys.
My favorite and most read Book is Watchers by Dean Koonz, book read many times is none of the above but it does have a time traveling KNIGHT.. A Knight in Shining Armor by Jude Deveraux
YES Squirrel Queen, I do read SOME Sci-Fi.
