Zane Grey (January 31, 1872 - October 23, 1939) was an American author best known for his popular adventure novels and stories that presented an idealized image of the American frontier, including the novel Riders of the Purple Sage, his best selling book. These are his stories.
Though Zane Grey's Western novels are always packed with plenty of pulse-pounding action and adventure, they are also philosophical and sophisticated, which often comes as an unexpected surprise to first-time readers of his work. Desert Gold contains the best of what made Zane Grey one of the most renowned writers of Westerns -- sweet romance, action-packed thrills, heartrending descriptions of the Western landscape, and plenty of thought-provoking talk about the virtues and travails of frontier life.
Imagine if Romeo and Juliet were set among the sheep ranching families of Arizona. Add in a heavy dash of frontier action and adventure, and that neatly sums up the plot of Zane Grey's To the Last Man, which follows a blossoming romance among members of feuding clans in the vast open plains of the Wild West.
Although Western writer Zane Grey is best remembered for The Riders of the Purple Sage, the novel The U.P. Trail is a favorite among critics and fans alike. This ambitious tale weaves a grand narrative of the construction of the Union Pacific Railroad line, which serves as the backdrop for a tender romance that blooms between the virtuous Allie and the mysterious and taciturn protagonist, Warren Neale.

A classic story of imperiled love on the western frontiers of nineteenth-century America. “He was a young man in years, but he had the hard face and eagle eye of one matured in experience of that wild country. He bestrode a superb bay horse, dusty and travel-worn and a little lame. The rider was no light burden, judging from his height and wide shoulders; moreover, the saddle carried a canteen, a rifle, and a pack. From time to time he looked back over his shoulder at the magnificent long cliff wall, which resembled a row of colossal books with leaves partly open. It was the steady, watchful gaze of a man who had left events behind him.” So begins Jim Wales’s story in Robbers’ Roost. While a battle rages between two outlaw gangs in a remote Utah canyon, Jim struggles to rescue Helen Herrick, who has been captured and held for ransom. Robbers’ Roost tells the story of their personal struggle to escape the clutches of the murderous outlaws while simultaneously safeguarding their passion, one that is not likely to survive the beautiful, yet deadly, terrain and people of the old American West. Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in fiction that takes place in the old West. Westerns—books about outlaws, sheriffs, chiefs and warriors, cowboys and Indians—are a genre in which we publish regularly. Our list includes international bestselling authors like Zane Gray and Louis L’Amour, and many more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
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.
American writer Zane Grey was an innovative early voice in the establishment of the Western genre. The novel Valley of Wild Horses follows rowdy protagonist Panhandle Smith as he confronts corruption in a small town. Packed with plenty of adventure, conflict, and romance, this book is a must-read for Zane Grey fans.
