From one of the bestselling western novelists of all time, comes another classic story.

Templeton Lambeth had so desperately wanted a son— an heir to ride by his side through the vast, wild ranges just west of the Pecos River. But to his disappointment, his wife bore a girl. His hopes crushed and in denial, he decides to raise his daughter as if she were a boy. In honor of Lambeth’s more successful brother, they named her: Terrill.

Upon the arrival of the Civil War, Lambeth enlists in Lee’s army, leaving behind his wife and tomboy daughter, with hopes to reconcile living in the shadow of his brother. By the time the war ends, Lambeth returns a colonel and his wife has passed. Tired of his old life as a cotton planter, he packs up with his tomboy daughter, Rill, and heads for the alluring western frontier to start anew.

After they arrive in the West, the Colonel is brutally murdered. Rill, disguised as a youth of eighteen who rode with the toughest, is left to fend for herself in the Wild West swarming with outlaws. Enter the one they called Pecos Smith—a rugged desperado with a mysterious past and one bad reputation. Though, he may not be what he seems.

Filled with adventure, bandits, and the beautiful landscape of America in its formative years, West of the Pecos is a classic tale by one of the greatest novelists of the American west.

Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in fiction that takes place in the old West. Westerns— books about outlaws, sheriffs, chiefs and warriors, cowboys and Indians—are a genre in which we publish regularly. Our list includes international bestselling authors like Zane Gray and Louis L’Amour, and many more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

    " One of my favorite Zane Grey books - I absolutely loved his books as a kid! Reading his books led me to fall in love with the American Southwest. "

    " Enjoyable, but I am tiring of reading romances when I want to read westerns. I like the accents of Grey's characters. "

    " I loved this book as a child and for nostalgic reasons I give it many stars. I loved the film with Robert Mitchum as a child also. "

    " Maybe Zane Grey's best???? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jude | 2/20/2011

    " i love the opening and descriptions of the West. Beauty is a typical gray heroine in some ways - the spoilt, rich girl coming out to the West and having her values questioned. It's a bit too similar to other novels. enjoyable but not my favourite - 'Riders of the Purple sage' it is not! "

    " I loved the book, it made me want to live on a ranch. But I was very disappointed with the ending and I did read it before I finished the book, not a good thing to do but I can't help myself! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 10/23/2008

    " One of my favorite Zane Grey novels. I love the romance, the tension, the devotion, and especially the character Gene Stewart. If you are one who reads the ending first, don't do that with this book - it will spoil a lot of it.

    PS. Be sure to read the sequel, Magesty's Rancho, as well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meghan | 3/5/2008

    " I love this book. Every time I need a pick me up I read this book. It only takes me a little time to read, but when I first read it, it took me longer because it's a verbose book, but I even then I had a hard time putting it down. "

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.
