Zane Grey's western fiction is compelling reading. There is something about the starkness and simplicity of the characters, the story lines and the setting that captivates me and sets me back in that time period. Certain elements of the writing style and the language are always surprising vs. current conventions, and this adds flavor to the reading experience. Even with very little fluff in his writing, Grey's novels will stick with you, and they become part of your understanding of the day and age when the west was being settled. Do not miss the Zane Grey experience! Please make a Review / Rating for this book.
