It is not surprising that Colonel Potter would find comfort in the writings of an author that presented life as it should be.< Less

The Young Pitcher: A Classic Baseball Story By Zane Grey
eBook (ePub): $1.99
This book evokes vivid images of intercollegiate sports in the early 1900s. The characters are warm and well-developed. The setting is nostalgic and timeless. Readers will puzzle over "Frosh on... More > the fifth" and chuckle over the potato toss. The reader can feel the despair when Ken finds out what he has done to the Captain of the college baseball team, and feels his chances of making the varsity squad slip away in an instant. No one can keep from laughing out loud when the perfume is spread or the sweater put on. The combination of setting, characters and good old-fashoned baseball makes for very pleasant reading. Personally, I recommend this book be read every Spring in anticipation of the upcoming baseball season, such as I have done for the last twenty-three years. It is a wonderful way to get in the mood for great battles on the ball diamond, as well as recapture the joys of youth. Reading this book could become as much a pastime as baseball itself.< Less

More > after the Riders of the Purple Sage story. The wall to Surprise Valley has been destroyed, and Jane Withersteen has to decide between the Lassiter's life and Fay's engagement to a Mormon. The protagonists' strong antagonism to Mormon polygamy is clearly important in both novels but in Rainbow Trail this theme is treated more obviously. The plots of both books revolve around the victimization of women in the Mormon culture: Situations in "Riders of the Purple Sage" are centered on the fighting of a Mormon woman who sacrifices her wealth and social status to avoid becoming a junior wife of the local church leader, while "Rainbow Trail" is contrary to the fanatical older Mormons with the rising generation of Mormon women who will not be resistant to polygamy and Mormon men who will not seek it.< Less
Heritage of the Desert: Classic American Western Novel By Zane Grey
eBook (ePub): $1.99
From Customer Review; Perhaps, with the exception of Riders of the Purple Sage, Heritage of the Desert is the best western Zane Grey ever wrote. It combines every thing one expects to find in the... More > genre, and then adds a little bit more you don't expect to find. It is the basic story of a young man, John Hare, who has come west to regain his health and to find his place in life only to be branded "Dene's spy" and becomes a hunted man. There is the Mormon element, only in this book they receive favorable treatment by Zane Grey; there are animal heros; a faithful Indian companion to the heroine, a half-Indian girl, Mescal; rustlers and land thieves; a favored son gone bad; and the canyon country of Utah described as only the master detailer can depict it in all of its glory and spendor. With this book Zane Grey set the standard by which he himself had to live up to with each succeeding novel, and HE DID.< Less
