Publisher Description

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.

  • “One sometimes forgets how skilled how skilled a writer Grey was; this is a two-part story of a youth turned gunman turned Texas Ranger.”

    " 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

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.
