Publisher Description

A western adventure becomes a journey of expiation and redemption.

Adam flees to the desert to save his life, and discovers the need to save his soul. In the searing heat of Death Valley, lonely land of prospectors and hermits, he confronts his baser instincts as he struggles to survive, striving to rise above them.

Wanderer of the Wasteland is Zane Grey’s most personal novel: a thinly veiled autobiography written in remarkably poetic language. Filled with colorful characters, and vibrant descriptions of the southwestern desert landscape he so loved, this is the story of one man’s internal battle to save his better self, or die trying.

  • “Wanderer of the Wasteland is a thinly disguised autobiography.”

    - Stephen J. May, author of Zane Grey, Romancing the West
  • “Michael Kramer has a rough edge to his voice that evokes the Western setting of this Zane Grey audiobook. There’s a romantic quality to his narration that gives the descriptive passages of the landscape more power than they have in print…Listeners can hear his joy at the natural world of Death Valley and later his weariness upon seeing a desert oasis that turns out to be a mirage. Note: The dialogue of Native Americans is stereotyped, and offensive terms appear occasionally.”

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.
