After killing a man in self defense, Buck Duane becomes an outlaw, a companion of the gunfighters and rustlers who live along the Texas border.

In a camp on the Mexican side of the river, he finds a young girl held prisoner and, in attempting to rescue her, brings down upon himself the wrath of her captors. Henceforth, he is forced to live a lonely life, hunted on one side by honest men, on the other by outlaws.

Then, one day, a big-hearted captain of rangers takes Buck into his camp, wins him a pardon, and makes him a ranger, pledged to fight for the law rather than against it. The girl whom he attempted to rescue also finds good in Buck.

Listener Opinions

    " Because this book was written in 1914 the language is somewhat dated, making it not as quick to read as I'd hoped. I would not usually choose to read a western but it was for genre study. Stereotypical characters but not over-the-top cliched. Predictable plot. Good guys vs. bad guys. Meh.... "

    " This was an alright book. Had a real old fashioned feel to it, not really my style. Didn't have much action either. "

    " Zane Grey really has a way with westerns. I was a little disappointed with this one and it took a long time to finish the book. It was exciting but too mushy with the Rangers falling for the ladies. "

    " A fun exciting western. Better than his Riders of the Purple Sage. "

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.
