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 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.

Meet the Author

Born in 1875, Zane Grey was raised in Zanesville, Ohio, a town founded by his mother’s family. His passion for the American West was aroused in 1907 when Grey toured the West with Buffalo Jones, a noted hunter and adventurer. Grey published a total of 85 books — popular adventure novels that idealized the Western frontier. Riders of the Purple Sage remains his best-known book. He died in 1939 in California.

This is a great read, fast-moving and you will find yourself transported to the north rim of the Grand Canyon - I've been there and recall some of these sites. Join the narrator as he joins a seasoned old cowboy on one of his last adventures, hunting the wilds above the Grand Canyon.

I couldn't even finish the book, because the formatting was so terrible. I don't understand why BN decides to only give away the crappy versions of Public Domain ebooks, when you can get good quality versions of them for free at Project Gutenberg

I think that this book makes me feel like I am just chilling but I dont get why we have to pay for it? It is not the best book in the world.

This book in epub format can be gotten free. Just search for it. I got mine from the Project Gutenberg website. It is public domain and you should not have to pay for it. The paperback might be a nice addition to your library though.
