More > trio of soldiers, home at last. Time has marked them, and the battles of France have left them disabled . . . but what awaits them on land, beyond the empty dock?

To the Last Man: Classic American Western Novel By Zane Grey
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Of all of Zane Grey's books, this one rates in my personal top three favorites. The story itself is outstanding. Lots of suspense and gunplay, with a hopeless romance injected to keep your mind... More > engaged. This story is especially good as it is loosely based on an true blood feud which happened in Pleasant Valley, a town in the Tonto Basin area of Arizona. Therefore, you can visit the site, see where Zane set his novel, and know that while Grey's may have been a fictional account, a feud DID happen, right where you are standing. The town is now called Young, by the way, to get rid of the stigma associated with the Pleasant Valley War. During a cross country trip, I took the time to drive out to Young just so I could see for myself where it all happened. I recommend every Zan Grey fan take the time to do so. I also read the account of the actual feud (available at the Tonto Basin Historical Center), and several key elements in Grey's novel are true.< Less
Tales of Lonely Trails: Classic American Western Novel By Zane Grey
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Tales of Lonely Trails contains a rare glimpse into the adventurer psyche of almost a century ago in USA. Grey, along with his brother, his young son and his companions including Buck Jones,... More > certainly shows us the mentality of the hunter and explorer of those days. His description of his visit to the Rainbow Bridge (Nonnezoshe) really brings through his personal sense of wonder. And it is no wonder that, in his novels, Grey's descriptions of the old American West are so authentic - he'd actually been there and lived the life of his characters. Another thing that comes through in the beginning pages of this book is the white man's disregard of the wildlife at the time and the dawning realisation that indisciminate killing and the manner of the killing is neither sensible nor humane. The account of the death of the old cougar makes the point when, turned off the animal's death, Buck Jones vows he'll never kill another cougar again.< Less
The Rustlers of Pecos County: Classic American Western Novel By Zane Grey
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Written earlier in his career, and in first person, this story about the Texas Rangers is typical "western" material. Having said that, I by no means mean this is inferior stuff, but you... More > can see, if you are a devotee of Zane Grey that this book was a model for many of the more famous works that came later, making him famous. Many of his books are interconnected with scenes and prologues that are in other stories--provided you have read them all, and have a good memory. The one thing Zane Grey did not do well, in my opinion, is tell a fiction story well in 1st person. His fishing books, and camp and trail books are superbly told this way, but his fiction lacks something when he uses this literary device. This is still a good enough book to buy and read, so if you don't have it, get it, and enjoy.< Less
The Man of the Forest: Classic American Western Novel By Zane Grey
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Milt Dale is the Man of the Forest. Living alone in a camp in the wilderness called Paradise Park, he prefers the company of bears, cougars, and wolves to that of the surrounding ranchers and... More > troublemakers. But one day he overhears a conversation that changes his life and convinces him to leave his wild paradise to save a young woman from certain doom. The pioneer spirit runs in Helen Rayner’s blood, but it may not save her from the nasty end that tough guy Snake Anson has planned for her. To get his hands on her uncle’s ranch, he needs to get rid of Helen—by any means necessary. But luckily for Helen, the Man of the Forest is not about to let that happen.< Less
The Last of the Plainsmen: Classic American Western Novel By Zane Grey
eBook (ePub): $1.99
This is my first Zane Grey book and I found it enjoyable. I had read a short story of his in Outdoor Life magazine, I think, when I was a youngster and I've searched for it fruitlessly over the last... More > 40-odd years. I was anticipating a Zane Grey Western novel when I pulled this out of my wife's bookshelf last week. Instead I found a travel book describing a magnificient trip and hunt into and around the Grand Canyou, mostly on the Utah side. The results of the epic journey and hunt are exciting and believeable. I found Grey flowery and a bit too purple at times in his descriptions, but a fine teller of a rip-snorter of a tale. It's a delight and I'll have to look for more, perhaps a novel, finally.< Less
The Lone Star Ranger: Classic American Western Novel By Zane Grey
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Fairdale, in Pecos County, Texas, is a crossroads of crime. Every bad guy in West Texas makes it a stopover or a base of operations. Facing budget cuts, the Texas Rangers agree to clean up Fairdale... More > in less than a year as a way of justifying their continued existence. Rangers Vaughn Steele and Marshal Sitter tackle the job, with Sitter going underground to ferret out the brains behind the criminal operations. This exciting yarn will be of special interest to Zane Grey fans. It is one of the few Grey novels written in the first person and is therefore much more character-driven than his usual work. Further, it is appearing here for the first time in its original form. As Grey's son notes in an introduction, significant changes were made when the story was first serialized, and subsequent publications either maintained the alterations or added new ones.

Riders of the Purple Sage was originally written in 1912 by Zane Grey and widely known as his best and famous Western novel. Most of reviewers agree that this novel shaped the formula of the popular... More > Western fiction. Reader Review; This is the only western I've ever read; I'm mostly into classical literature, science writing, and non-fiction, but I asked friends for a book rec in the field, and they said read this one and the two Thomas Berger novels about Little Big Man.< Less

eBook (ePub): $1.99
This classic western tail of men saving women, while being a great love story is also a wonderful adventure story. A classic cowboy\borderman fights indian to save the helpless beuty, but instead of... More > man saving woman, it is reversed, when Helen saves Jonathan from his own unhappy life. I have loved this book since the first day my mother placed it in my hands to read, and although the original has a few lapses in storyline, they kill someone twice, the basic story structure is enjoyable. Having read this book close to a dozen times, I can recommend that every person who has never given westerns a try read this one.< Less
