Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Jim Gough is the perfect reader for this story…He dramatizes moments of romance and ‘man’s inhumanity to man’ with his mellow style and baritone voice, which take the listener to a campfire where Westerners tell tall tales amid the beautiful Western landscape. Listeners, young and old, will enjoy Grey’s way with words and Gough’s relaxing cowboy drawl.” AudioFile
“Readable and engrossing.” New York Times
“A vivid and exciting story.” Booklist

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.
