    " I'm not really a fan of westerns, but I liked this book. It was hard to read about the terrible things that human beings did to each other, and I loved that Zane Grey tried to be fair to the Native Americans before the time of political correctness. They were still the very bad guys, but there was an attempt at least to understand their motives. And I actually liked how he portrayed women. Again, writing in a time when women were regarded as only the fairer sex, he gave the women in his story a little gumption and a lot of courage. And the story itself was incredible. I couldn't put the book down when the fort was undersiege. "

    " I really, really, really liked this book. It had romance, adeventure, humor, a love triangle, and great characters. It's a true story written by the heroine's great-grandson in 1903. Obviously, some of the material (like the dialouge) is left to the author's imagination. Because of the time it was written it has what we consider now, racial slurs about African-Americans, Native Americans and the British. It's a great story about the settling of the "west" right after the American Revolution. I listened to the audio and found myself doing house tasks I normally dread with some enthusiasm so I could have an excuse to listen. Totally worth ten hours of my time. "

    " This is one of three books that Zane Grey wrote of the time, happenings, and actualy incidents that occurred in the lives of his ancestors who were pioneers into the Ohio wilderness. Ebenezer Zane was the founder of what is now Wheeling, West Virgina; Isaac Zane lent his name to current day Zanesville, Ohio. Betty Zane was a pioneer ancestress who enacted a brave part in frontier history. Grey's books are simplistic when compared to James Fennimore Cooper's novels set in the same time period, but provide color, excitement, adventure and personal insights. Also a bit of actual history mixed in there. "

About the Author
Author Zane Grey

Zane Grey (1872–1939), born in Ohio, was practicing dentistry in New York when he and his wife published his first novel. Grey presented the West as a moral battleground in which his characters are destroyed because of their inability to change or are redeemed through a final confrontation with their past. The man whose name is synonymous with Westerns made his first trip west in 1907 at age thirty-five. More than 130 films have been based on his work.
