'ONE WHO WALKED ALONE: Robert E. Howard, The Final Years'
by Novalyne Price Ellis

This is about the pulp fiction writer who wrote pulp fiction novels..such as 'Conan The Barbarian' and many more. This book was written by Novalyne Price Ellis who had a friendship with REH and was a teacher and longing writer. It was set in the 1930's as that was when Robert and Novalyne Price Ellis existed. And she published the book in 1986. She died right before the 1996 movie was released( I believe that's correct...I'll have to check forsure..but I believe that's what I read).

It all starts in 1933..in Central Plains Texas.

I highly recommend the book and the 1996 movie The Whole Wide World..the movie is based on this book and stars Renee Zellweger as Novalyne Price Ellis and Vincent D'Onofrio(from Law & Order: CI fame).

Currently, I'm going through the book of Isaiah. FYI, Isaiah 2 is where 'the cedars of Lebanon' is mentioned.

Ooh!  *jumps up and down excitedly*  Last month, I was in church and the Psalm mentioned "The cedars of Lebanon".  I elbowed my daughter excitedly and pointed it out.  She just rolled her eyes at me.   >:(

That's a good idea, I should go back and read the bible.  I haven't read it in a while.

I'm reading Pride and Prejudice now. I saw the movie and really enjoyed it, and reading the book makes me appreciate the movie even more, because it stayed true to the book.
