Here is another marvelous Zane Grey novel. In his magnificent style, Zane Grey has crafted a story that's both moving and exciting with new perils in every chapter. Not only is there gun fighting, cattle rustling and the battle over water holes, but the thrilling capture and winning over of Silvermane, the magnificent wild stallion admired and wanted by every white man and Indian on the desert. All of this is intermingled with tender love between the main character, Jack Hare and the beautiful half-breed maiden, Mescal.

    " I adore Zane Grey. I especially like the way he describes the scenery of the Southwest deserts. Very predictable material, but SO fun. "

    " Zane Grey's first western. I can see why he wrote more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brendan | 1/21/2013

    " It is predictable but well done, and I enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gary | 12/25/2012

    " 100 years after the original publication of his first book we get a chance to read a version that has not been re-written by the editors & publishers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathryn | 9/24/2012

    " This one was hard for me to rate as westerns are not a genre I've read before nor have I ever read Zane Grey. It was well written, the good guys win in the end and the area around the Grand Canyon was glorious. I'm glad I read it, but wouldn't read another. "

    " In the end the good guy shoots the bad guy and gets the girl. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruth | 2/9/2011

    " Not a typical book for me but really good. Taken place back when settlers were just moving west to Ohio. Book encompasses what life was like back then, encounters with Indian tribes and even a little romance included. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben | 1/24/2011

    " Hey, this is a well written western. There is romance, danger, and a happy ending. It is set around Fort Pit, and involves woodsmen rather than cowboys. If you like the mountain man theme, you'll enjoy this one. I sure did. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danzaiss | 1/19/2011

    " This book concludes the trilogy that began with Betty Zane, followed by The Spirit of the border. A spirited and captivating story of pioneer life on the U.S. borderland (Wheeling, West Viginiia - from a time that predates the creation of WV). Very good descriptions on the wilderness. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vickie | 9/6/2010

    " i love historical fiction in almost any form. Betty Zane is the true story of one of Zane Grey's great, great, (something) grandmothers who settled the wilderness back in the 1600s. The writing is dated, but still a good story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimbolimbo | 3/11/2009

    " If you ever want to make sure you have a GREAT book to listen to on a long drive you'll never go wrong with a Zane Grey book. Everyone in the car will get caught up in the action and romance. This was another fun book to listen to while performing mundane tasks at work. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 1/17/2009

    " In this typical western, the good guy gets the bad guys and wins the girl. Enough said! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bee | 4/17/2008

    " I read a lot of Zane Grey and Louis L'Amour when I was in my early teens, thanks to my dad. 'The Last Trail' is my favorite Zane Grey. I did try to read it again as an adult a couple of years ago and it didn't hold quite the same charm, which made me a little sad. I still love them, though. "

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.
