Best of Zane Grey PRION BOOKS
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
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.

Excerpt: Riders of the Purple Sage is Zane Grey's best-known novel originally published in 1912. Most critics agree that it played a significant role in shaping the formula of the popular Western genre. Riders of the Purple Sage tells the story of Jane Withersteen and her battle to overcome her persecution by members of her LDS church, a leader of which, Elder Tull, wants to marry her. Withersteen is supported by a number of Gentile friends, including Bern Venters and Lassiter, the famous gunman and killer of Mormons. Throughout most of the novel she struggles with her "blindness" in seeing the evil nature of her church and its leaders, trying to keep both Venters and Lassiter from killing her adversaries, who are slowly ruining her. Through the adoption of a child, Fay, she abandons her false beliefs and discovers her true love. A second plot strand tells of Venters and his escape to the wilderness with a girl whom he has accidentally shot, cares for, and falls in love with. In the end of the novel Venters and Bess, "the rustler's girl," escape to the East, while Lassiter, Fay, and Jane, pursued by both Mormons and rustlers, escape into a paradise-like valley by toppling a giant balancing rock, forever closing off the only way in or out. The events depicted in Riders of the Purple Sage occur between the mid-spring and the late summer of 1871. Early in Riders of the Purple Sage, we are introduced to Jane Withersteen and the main conflict: the right to befriend a Gentile. (In Riders of the Purple Sage, the word "Gentile" is synonymous with "non-Mormon." The usage was common in the Church.) This conflict is best demonstrated in the statement: "Jane Withersteen gazed down the wide purple slope with dreamy and troubled eyes. A rider had just left her and it was his message that held her thoughtful and...
