Listener Opinions

    " Very early western novel. Too much romance. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 4/20/2011

    " I haven't read a Zane Grey novel in years, but I recalled from before that his descriptions of western landscapes were nearly epic. And so they are. Worthy reading for that alone. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Robin | 3/12/2011

    " Ok, now I can say I've read one western. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patricia | 3/5/2011

    " I found this book to be quite an eye opener of the way the Mormons lived in Western Utah in the turn of the century. Breathtaking narrative on the landscape of the Sage plains and horsemanship. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marla | 2/27/2011

    " A good western read includes interesting outside look of the Mormons of Southern Utah. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paulette | 2/17/2011

    " I am sure that my review is skewed by the fact that my dad and I each read so many Zane Grey and I have fond memories of my own cowboy father. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clay | 2/14/2011

    " I've been curious about this book for years. It was a fun read, but deserves all the criticism it receives. The writing is very hyperbolic and not in a good way. It is easy to see where it started so many Western cliches. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Abby | 2/1/2011

    " I would be a liar if I said I did not enjoy reading this book at all.

    Beyond that, not so sure what to say. The plot, obviously, is somewhat bankrupt, not surprising for what it is. But, entertaining anyway. "

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.
