30,000 on the Hoof
Wildside Press, LLC, 2011 - 230 pages
Zane Grey produced over sixty books during his career. He presented the West as a moral battle ground, in which his characters are redeemed through a final confrontation with their past or destroyed because of their inability to change. Grey's semioutlaw heroes were his most interesting creations, among them Lassiter in RIDERS OF THE PURPLE SAGE (1912), a gunman who has lost a girl he loved to a Mormon preacher, and Buck Duane, the agonized killer of LONE STAR RANGER (1915). Randolph Scott played a former outlaw in Fritz Lang's film Western Union (1941), based on the novel. Grey's stories, set against the beautiful but harsh landscape of the West, have fascinated readers all over the world.
