Riders of the Purple Sage Zane Grey's most enduring classic - the book that invented the myth of the American West. In the little village of Cottonwoods, Utah, Mormon rancher Jane Withersteen endures persecution, religious zealots, and cattle rustlers trying to prey on her land. Aided by Lassiter, the famous gunman, Jane and her friends must escape the clutches of her most dangerous enemies. The Rainbow Trail John Shefford rode into Utah in search of a new life, and when he met Fay Larkin, a beautiful woman charged with murder, he knew he had found it. Breaking her out of jail was the easy part. Now he has a posse and violent bands of Indians to outrun; a murderous trek through a trackless waste; and a brutal passage through white-water hell.
The father of the western novel, Zane Grey (1872-1939) was born in Zanesville, Ohio. He wrote 58 westerns, such as The Last Trail and The Spirit of the Border, as well as almost 30 other books. More than 130 films have been based on his works.
