Overview

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, 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.
