Overview

Three classics of the western genre by the greatest of its founders

Zane Grey is the most famous writer in westerns, a founder of the genre. His works have been made into more than one hundred movies and his stories have endured for a century, influencing all others in the genre.

Three fine, characteristic works are included in this omnibus: To the Last Man, the story of Arizona's Pleasant Valley War—an historic brutal family feud that ended in universal slaughter; The Mysterious Rider, a romantic adventure featuring Hell Bent Wade, a basically good man with a violent temper that leads him to murder—and redemption; and The Lone Star Ranger, the tale of a youth turned gunman turned Texas Ranger—and perhaps the spark that inspired that mythic character, The Lone Ranger.

LizzyB More than 1 year ago
About fifty years ago, when I started to read more adult than childrens book, my first choice was one of Zane Grey's. I purchased this book more for nostalgic reasons than anything else. Although the language and settings are somewhat different. the stories were interesting. For someone who loves westerns and the old days, this would be a wonderul gift.
