A border town like Casita is no place for a drifter - especially a rich manís son looking for adventure. From the moment Dick Gale steps into this stinking, sun-baked hellhole of gambling and corruption, revolution, and revenge, he gets more than he bargained for. His old friend Thorne is in love with a beautiful seŮorita whoís been targeted by the Mexican rebel Rojas. A bold, sneering devil of a man, feared, envied, and idolized by his people, Rojas spends gold like he spills blood - and collects women like trinkets. Gale knows that defying such a man could be suicide. Defeating him is his only chance to survive - in a brutal one-on-one battle on the parched desert cliffs.

It is amazing to me that something written over 100 yrs ago is so fascinating. Zane Grey is an American icon, so prolific and profound. Why have I only recently discovered his work? Maybe its because his books are being reprinted in Large Print! Read full review

About the author (2008)

Zane Grey was born Pearl Zane Gray in 1872, in Zanesville, Ohio. He studied dentistry at the University of Pennsylvania, married Lina Elise Roth in 1905, then moved his family west where he began to write novels. The author of 86 books, he is today considered the father of the Western genre, with its heady romances and mysterious outlaws. Riders of the Purple Sage (1912) brought Grey his greatest popular acclaim. Other notable titles include The Light of Western Stars (1914) and The Vanishing American (1925). An extremely prolific writer, he often completed three novels a year, while his publisher would issue only one at a time. Twenty-five of his novels were published posthumously. His last, The Reef Girl, was published in 1977. Zane Grey died in Altadena, California, in 1939.
