Description

Richard Gale, a college football star, travels to Mexico to prove himself after failing in every business opportunity that his wealthy father had handed him. When he arrives at an Arizona border town, a chance meeting with an old friend launches him into an adventure to save a young Spanish beauty from a ruthless Mexican bandit.



Within the mystical beauty of the desert landscape, this extraordinary novel touches on many complexities of humanity, including honor, lust, vengeance, and love. And in this western classic, Zane Grey captures the grandeur of the true Old West as only he can.

About the author

Zane Grey (1872–1939) was born in Zanesville, Ohio, a city named for a Revolutionary War hero who was his ancestor. After attending the University of Pennsylvania on a baseball scholarship, he started a dentistry practice in New York City and wrote in the evenings. An avid outdoorsman, Grey found his inspiration in the American West, and his bestselling novels, including the iconic Riders of the Purple Sage, established the conventions and the enduring popularity of the Western genre.

  • (4/5)
    A quintessential Western adventure story. This one is a classic in that format. It uses the rugged elements and stock characters in a plot that is simple and enjoyable, but with just enough foreshadowing and cultural exploration to place it above the typical dime-store novel.
  • (3/5)
    One can almost eat Zane Grey;s descriptions of his western lands. Fabulous! Moderns probably pooh-pooh these tales of men that are "pure of heart and noble of character," and women that are "Passionate and strong, yet always ladies." Zane's portraitures became known in America as "the code of the west," an instance of where fiction influenced life. That happens more often than not, methinks.
