Three desperate people who had fled Mormon persecution were being held prisoner in a lost canyon. Among them was a beautiful lady named Fay Larkin, whom John Shefford was in love with.

The secret to the canyon lay in a hidden Mormon village of “sealed” wives, where the penalty for trespassing was death. And the treacherous half-breed Shad and his murderous crew were blocking the way to the village.

The tenderfoot Shefford was desperate to rescue his lady. To accomplish this was no easy task, especially considering he didn’t even pack a gun. He would have to fight his way to the canyon, knowing that his efforts might end in bloody slaughter.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Doug Dams | 2/6/2014

    " This Zane Grey story follows a man, John Stafford, who leaves home after a career failure to search for his purpose in life. Along the way he hears the story of a woman who needs help and so he starts to roam the west looking for her. His travels and the characters he meets and the dangers faced make this book a page turner. It also answers a question about the fate of two characters introduced in the book "Riders of The Purple Sage." "

    " rescued mormon sealed wives and statuesque-stereotyped navajos, what more could a girl want from a pulp western "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Jacob | 1/12/2014

    " Started out ok, with some Abbey like descriptions of the desert. The story plot started out interesting as well. However, about a third of the way through this one got really stale. Descriptions of the land became repetitive, the plot unfolded in painfully predictable fashion, and the protagonist degenerated into hand wringing questioning of his potential relationship with the Sago Lily. This book was fine for the cross-country plane ride I read it on but not one I would go out and buy. If you like Zane Grey or Westerns in general you could consider getting it for free on the Kindle but if your time is limited go ahead and skip it. 2 stars after a relatively strong start. "
