Reviews

On Oct 17 2020, a reader said:
This book contains four of Zane Grey's best short novels, all of which were published in the 1920's in the magazine market, and collected here in one volume to give the public the opportunity to read the best of the best. No one knew the Old West like Zane Grey. He traveled extensively over the region, learning the lay of the land, and the tales spun by the old timers who were still around. He got to know the land and the people who settled it, and out of that relationship came these stories--The Ranger, about a Texas ranger who risks his life to rescue the woman he loves; Canyon Walls, about an outlaw wanting to go straight who finds a family who will take him in, with no questions asked; Avalanche, about two brothers who fight over a beautiful girl who.....; and From Missouri, about an Eastern female school teacher who ventures West with unrealized dreams on her mind. These are the "bread and butter" type of stories Zane Grey wrote, and the female readership of the day couldn't get enough. It was the fact over 50 percent of his readership were women, and he didn't disappoint as many of the lead characters in his books were women, strong women, women who knew their minds, and had the nerve to back it up with action. Get this book, and read it for yourself. If you have never read a Zane Grey novel before, these stories are a great introduction to him.
