On Apr 12 2020, a reader said:
The Thundering Herd was the first book Zane Grey ever submitted to a publisher without his wife's editorial opinion of the work, or her "touching up" of the final draft. Undoubtedly she was the reason his work was so appreciated and adored by the women of the era. Case in point: This book was first published in The Ladie's Home Journal as a serial, even with all of the blood and gore and the vivid descriptive imagery Zane Grey was known to possess. To us today it seems amazing such a magazine would publish such a book, yet that is the power, the talent Zane Grey had to enthrall and entertain his readership; they couldn't get enough. Thundering Herd is the story of the buffalo and of their near extinction when hide hunters swarmed the plains killing them by the tens of thousands, and at the same time helping to eliminate the Indians by killing their food supply. This book pays homage to the buffalo. The hero, Tom Doan and the heroine Milly Fayre have a rather unique relationship in this book, and Milly's story is the most interesting. I encourage you to get this book and read it. It's worth the price. And these Walter J. Black editions will last a life time. P.S. There is an unexpurgated version, Buffalo Stampede, available, but if you can't afford it this one will certainly do.
