JWR’s Recommendations of the Week

Today, I’m launching a new weekly column to focus on the books and movies that I have found particularly useful and entertaining. I either have these on the shelf here at the Rawles Ranch, or they’ve been recommended to me by my family members or close friends.

Please note that many of my movie recommendations are not “training films”; they are simply entertainment. Also note that many of these films depict times of peril, so they are not suitable for children!


Cookin’ with Home Storage by Vicki Tate
Raising a Calf for Beef by Phyllis Hobson
Wolf And Iron by Gordon Dickson


Shane (IMHO, the best western film ever made)
The Patriot
