From beloved author Zane Grey come four thrillingtales of the West. The very essence of the American West can be foundin the stories of Zane Grey, an author whose popularity has not flagged sincehis first novel was published. “Silvermane” is concerned with the efforts oftwo Mormon mustangers, brothers Lee and Cuth Stewart, to capture a wildstallion in the Sevier range country. “Tappan’s Burro,” with the text restoredfrom the author’s handwritten manuscript, tells of the life of a desert prospectorand his burro, Jenet. Tappan dreams of finding gold—and does. When he ispursued by claim jumpers, it is Jenet who guides him across the floor of DeathValley when it is beset by suffocating gales of nocturnal heat and gas. “CañonWalls,” also restored according to the author’s holographic manuscript, is thestory of outlaw Smoke Bellew, who enters a remote Mormon settlement only a jumpahead of a posse. Finding employment as a ranch hand working for a dowagerMormon, Smoke is able to make her ranch a financial success whilesimultaneously falling in love with her wanton daughter, Rebecca. But it is toogood to last. “From Missouri,” its text restored as well, is a story about aschoolteacher from the East who is discouraged from coming to Arizona Territoryby letters forged by three cowhands. But the mysterious Frank Owens’ loveletters convince her she must come anyway. When Jane Stacey does arrive, to theamazement of the three cowhands, she is not the middle-aged matron they hadexpected but a young and very attractive woman.

Author Bio: Zane Grey

Author Bio: Zane Grey

Zane Grey® (1872–1939), born in Ohio, was practicing dentistry in New York when he and his wife published his first novel. Grey presented the West as a moral battleground in which his characters are destroyed because of their inability to change or are redeemed through a final confrontation with their past. The man whose name is synonymous with Westerns made his first trip west in 1907 at age thirty-five. More than 130 films have been based on his work.
