The Searchers

In lieu of a full-court review, of which I lack the desire and energy to write, I’ll give you three letters, three words, and eight marks of punctuation:

OMG!!! She’s Ethan’s daughter!!!


Now, as a side note, I have the book upon which The Searchers is based, also entitled The Searchers. The slim paperback I have is so yellowed with age I wouldn’t be surprised if either John Wayne or John Ford personally handled the book. Apparently, Ethan is known as Amos in the book, and from what little I know, little else is changed. Except, perhaps, the ending and the whole meaning of the work. Anyways, I plan on traversing those pages come summertime.
