And then into his heart rode the beautiful young lady from the east.

    " The original Western with a noble hero. I found out that it's one of Julie Beck's favorite books too. One of the few books I've read on my Kindle. "

    " I wanted to enjoy this because of the reviews, but could'nt make any more than Page 124 (of 384) when I tired of the disconnected prose along with a wandering storyline. "

    " This is a very early western novel and includes good bits of history that make it very interesting. Many other books and movies were inspired by this novel. I liked it a lot. "

    " The first real Western in America.
    Interesting commentary on masculine/feminine roles; enjoyable read

    " Long winded Little House on the Prairie for grownups. This is only recommended for people who love the mythology of the good and noble cowboy who lived by superior morals. I live in the west, and I just don't buy it, even if some of the people who live around me do believe it "

    " lovely book written and set in the late 1800s in Wyoming. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 2/12/2011

    " I really liked this book!! The only bad thing was that I couldn't get Garth Brooks songs out of my head while I read it. Not a problem for some people, but not a pleasant thing for me! Other than that, this book was fun and so well written that I had a hard time putting it down!! "

    " Young cowboy works on a ranch in Wyoming, falls for a schoolteacher, and keeps the peace in the wild west. Odd narration. "

    " Never cared to read a western, but on Catharine's recommendation, I read this and LOVED it. This is one I would like to re-read "

    " Much better than the tv show, lol! Excellent character sketches. On what a man is. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzanne | 12/10/2010

    " This is an awesome book - it's about the real wild west, before it was settled, with a manly cowboy and a great romance. "

About the Author
Author Owen Wister

Owen Wister (1860–1938) showed promise as a musician early in his life, but his father directed him into a career in banking and then the law. Plagued with neurasthenia, Wister took a variant of the “rest cure” of Dr. Silas Weir Mitchell, traveling to Wyoming on Mitchell’s advice. From these experiences, Wister began to write short stories about the West. His Western writing culminated in the 1902 publication of The Virginian, the most popular Western ever written. In addition to novels, Wister wrote short stories, operas, plays, poetry, and nonfiction, including biographies of Ulysses S. Grant and George Washington.
