In this 1920 bestseller, Milt Dale, a lone camper, overhears a conversation that persuades him to leave his forest paradise to save a young woman from certain doom.

Milt Dale is the Man of the Forest. Living alone in a camp in the wilderness called Paradise Park, he prefers the company of bears, cougars, and wolves to that of the surrounding ranchers and troublemakers. But one day he overhears a conversation that changes his life and convinces him to leave his wild paradise to save a young woman from certain doom.

The pioneer spirit runs in Helen Rayner’s blood, but it may not save her from the nasty end that tough guy Snake Anson has planned for her. To get his hands on her uncle’s ranch, he needs to get rid of Helen—by any means necessary. But luckily for Helen, the Man of the Forest is not about to let that happen.

    " Grey's descriptions of nature, taking up most of the first half of the tale, are a pleasure to read. It is in the second half that the action really gets underway. I found the novel a bit long, but the story was interesting nonetheless. "

    " In this classic, a lone camper in the forest overhears a conversation that convinces him to leave his wild paradise to save a young woman from certain doom. The Man of the Forest isn't about to let a tough guy kill Helen to get his hands on her uncle's ranch. "

    " I read most of Zane Grey's book when I was a teen ager and I'm re-visiting them now in my 60's. They are still just as good as when I first read them all those years ago. "

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.
