AN ENCOUNTER

IT WAS Joe Dillon who introduced the Wild West to us. He had a little library made up of old numbers of The Union Jack , Pluck and The Halfpenny Marvel . Every evening after school we met in his back garden and arranged Indian battles. He and his fat young brother Leo, the idler, held the loft of the stable while we tried to carry it by storm; or we fought a pitched battle on the grass.

Hi, every body it was very graceful and interesting story. I am from IRAN the LAND OF PERSIAN. Good by and have a prospreous year 2012 SINCERELY Ashkan from SHIRAZ the city of POLITE & CULTURE.and also I recommand you to to have a trip to IRAN specially SHIRAZ to be familliar with IRAN's PEOPLE AND CULTURE.

So innovative for his time. He's able to create a sort of "halo" around each character, simply by putting at a certain point a single, precise word with his peculiar exquisite, intelligent description of the psychologies. Nice, nice, nice.
