Overview

In its first appearance with a text based on the author's holographic manuscript, three cowhands working for the Springer Ranch have tried, through forging letters, to discourage a schoolteacher in the East from coming West to teach school. Their strategy has failed because of a mysterious Frank Owens whose love letters have convinced her that she must come. No one knows who he is.

Jane Stacey does arrive, and to everyone's amazement, she is not the middle-aged matron expected but a young and very attractive woman. The Springer ranch hands are put in a quandary, falling over themselves in their desire to impress Jane Stacey and simply because they have had too much to drink. Bill Springer is the only one sober enough to take matters in hand and drive her out to the ranch. However, the lecherous Beady Jones has his own idea of how the new schoolmarm should be introduced to the West.

Meet the Author

ZANE GREY (1872–1939), born in Ohio, was practicing dentistry in New York when he and his wife published his first novel themselves. He presented the West as a moral battleground, in which his characters are destroyed because of their inability to change or be redeemed through a final confrontation with their past. The man whose name is synonymous with Westerns made his first trip west in 1907, at age thirty-five. Motion picture rights brought in a fortune, with 109 films based on his work.

Tom Weiner, a dialogue director and voice artist best known for his roles in CD-ROM games and television shows such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Transformers, is a former member of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. An Earphones Award winner and Audie® Award nominee, he has narrated more than one hundred books for Blackstone.
