In this classic novel of the West, young Panhandle Smith trails the men who ruined his father to New Mexico, only to find them ruling the corrupt town of Marco. Even worse, his childhood sweetheart is now engaged to Dick Hardman, the man Smith has sworn to kill. Smith has a plan. Fighting down his past as a gunman, he prepared to start a new life with only a saloon girl and an itinerant cowboy as his allies. But even the best plans have a way of going awry. Set against the dramatic background of a wild-horse roundup, the plot leads to the inevitable clash between two strong and stubborn men.

I couldn't finish this book. There was no real story to it, at least no story that presented itself within the first quarter of the book. Read full review

About the author (1972)

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 of heart failure on October 23 in Altadena, California, in 1939.
