Set in the dangerous West Virginia frontier, this is the story of the heroic Betty Zane, the beautiful young sister of old Colonel Isaac Zane, one of the most courageous of the pioneers.

Balanced against the grim incidents of the Indian War is the love story of Betty and Alfred Clarke, a handsome young soldier. Their romance, however, is plagued by troubles and endless interruptions before reaching its stirring climax. The exciting life around Fort Henry, an attack by Indians, Betty’s heroic defense of the beleaguered garrison at Wheeling, the burning of the fort, and Betty’s final race for life make up this remarkable story—a story filled with the life, color, and spirit of pioneer days.

This novel, based on real people and events, is an evocative historical tale that will capture your heart and your mind.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Review by Amy | 2/20/2014

    " 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. "

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.
