Overview

THE LAST OF THE PLAINSMEN....A WESTERN ADVENTURE THROUGH THE GRAND CANYON HUNTING LIONS!
FOLLOW ACROSS THE ARIZONA DESERT AND HUNT IN THE DEEP CANYONS AND AMONG THE GIANT PINES. A FASCINATING READ BY A GREAT AUTHOR! 225 PAGES IN PRINT!

• This volume includes a “Detailed Biography” of our author, Zane Grey.

Follow the tale of a rag-tag band of plainsmen led by Col. Jones. A feisty, tough old man who will stop at nothing so he can rope (yes I said rope) a wild cougar and bring it back home. They are a breed of men whose resilience and spirit are the stuff of pioneers and mountain men. The kind of indomitable spirit that won the west, and is the subject of much of America's folklore. Along the way they endure seventy degree below zero blizzards, desert dust storms, starving Indians, and a harsh, yet pristine wilderness of incredible beauty. Zane Grey s depiction of panoramic landscapes such as the Grand Canyon is picturesque. One can almost smell the forest's and sense the loneliness of the wilderness. A great read and one that will be hard to put down.

This book is an outstanding true account of a trip made by Zane Grey and a plainsman, Buffalo Jones - one of the last. Jones was a famous sportsmen in North America at the turn of the 20th century and Grey a famous author of adventure stories. Unlike many of Grey's fictional novels of the old west, this is an account of a trip made to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon about 1908, for the purpose of tracking and capturing mountain lions. In those days, the North Rim was famous for the number and size of cougars - one mentioned in the book was 10' long, tip of tail to nape of neck, and weighed 300 pounds.
