From beloved author Zane Grey come four thrilling
tales of the West. The very essence of the American West can be found
in the stories of Zane Grey, an author whose popularity has not flagged since
his first novel was published.
“Silvermane” is concerned with the efforts of
two Mormon mustangers, brothers Lee and Cuth Stewart, to capture a wild
stallion in the Sevier range country.
“Tappan’s Burro,” with the text restored
from the author’s handwritten manuscript, tells of the life of a desert prospector
and his burro, Jenet. Tappan dreams of finding gold—and does. When he is
pursued by claim jumpers, it is Jenet who guides him across the floor of Death
Valley when it is beset by suffocating gales of nocturnal heat and gas.
Walls,” also restored according to the author’s holographic manuscript, is the
story of outlaw Smoke Bellew, who enters a remote Mormon settlement only a jump
ahead of a posse. Finding employment as a ranch hand working for a dowager
Mormon, Smoke is able to make her ranch a financial success while
simultaneously falling in love with her wanton daughter, Rebecca. But it is too
good to last.
“From Missouri,” its text restored as well, is a story about a
schoolteacher from the East who is discouraged from coming to Arizona Territory
by letters forged by three cowhands. But the mysterious Frank Owens’ love
letters convince her she must come anyway. When Jane Stacey does arrive, to the
amazement of the three cowhands, she is not the middle-aged matron they had
expected but a young and very attractive woman. However, the lecherous Beady
Jones has his own idea of how the new schoolmarm should be introduced to the
West. Download and start listening now!
