From the master of the western comes a tale of love tested by the rugged life of the American Southwest. Carley Burch, a beautiful young woman, must leave her glamorous high-society life of New York to follow her fiancé, Glenn Kilbourne, to the rugged Wild West. She braves fierce ruffians, brutal elements, and lack of civilization in an attempt to reclaim him. Glenn, suffering from shell shock and the betrayal of his country following World War I, had moved west to recover. He then fell in love with the West, and his perspective on life was changed forever. Glenn now finds his previous high-society life repulsive. Can Carley adapt to the rigorous life of the West? Will she be able to convince Glenn to return to his “home” in New York? Will she be in time before a rival temptress steals Glenn away?

    " Another great western romance from Zane Grey! I loved learning about the way Oak Creek Canyon used to be. "

    " Re-read this in an e-reader format. It was less interesting and more "preachy" than I had remembered. If one likes to read endlessly about why women should marry and have children as the highest calling imaginable, go for it. Otherwise, it isn't worth it. "

    " I enjoyed the book alot I have read most of zane gray books a few times. He is a great author westerns. "

    " I give his message a five star; however his descriptions are a little too long. "

    " A classic western by one of the greats! I haven't read the Zane Grey books for years. Always a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 6/17/2010

    " Perhaps if I had been born in 1900 I would have been able to grasp all of the references to the issues of the day. It turned out properly in the end, for which I'm thankful. I hate it when I struggle through a book and it doesn't end well. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 L. | 6/1/2009

    " This book stays with me solely for the rant against the evils of jazz music, dark movie theaters, and women rolling their stockings below their knees. Shocking! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ted Mallory | 5/18/2009

    " Read it on a vacation to AZ. Great to actually see Flagstaff & Oak Creek Canyon as he described them. "

    " Zane Grey paints with words. I am a sucker for westerns and his books are a guilty pleasure of mine. I think this was my favorite one yet. "

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.
