Zane Grey is, without doubt, the absolute master of the Western novel. Although he was 31 years old before his first book was published in 1903, his writing style and his depiction of the old 'wild' west led to him becoming one of the highest-earning authors of 'popular' literature of his time. The books, and the movies that were based on his work, made Grey a millionaire many times over. This classic collection of three of the best Zane Grey Western adventures includes his best-known bestseller, "Riders of the Purple Sage", a thrilling saga set in the Utah/Arizona border country which features a despicable villain and a straight-shootin' hero in a tale of passion, rivalry and revenge. In "The Trail Driver", the heroine is disguised as a boy while a cast of hard-bitten, weather-beaten characters drive four thousand cattle north out of Texas, braving the weather, marauding outlaws and hostile Indians along the way. "Rangers of the Lone Star", features Texas Ranger Russ Sittell working undercover on a ranch to break a rustling ring, a dangerous assignment made all the more hazardous by the fact that the ranch owner is the local Mayor.
These three epic tales represent a wonderful way for Western fans familiar with Zane Grey's work to drift back into his stories of life on the range but are equally attractive for anyone who would like to sample a little of life in the wild west.
