- The definitive edition.
- Large Print edition.
• Features an extended biography of the life and experiences of Pearl Zane Grey
Madeline's brother Alfred struggles to make ends meet. Madeline is overwhelmed by the refreshing experience in the open ranches, mountains, and plains away from city life. The handsome cowboy Gene Stewart is a welcome distraction, too.
After some difficult times adjusting to life as a cowgirl, Madeline embraces her new life. She buys land of her own to settle down. At the same time, she finds out that cowboys can be tamed and danger is never far off. The only way to survive it all is by cooperating with the locals against attacking bandits and Mexican raiders.
"He'll rob, burn, and make off with you. He'll murder, too, if it falls his way."
Will Madeline's growing desire for the western lifestyle push her into risking her life?
Light of the Western Stars is a story about a young woman's pursuit for meaning in a world full of danger, love in unexpected places and redemption for the future. The book shows us how compelling cowboy life was in 1912 New Mexico.
