Sintesi dell'editore

It's 1871 in the contented Mormon town of Cottonwoods, Utah, and Elder Tull wants to marry wealthy rancher Jane Withersteen so desperately that he's willing to use the water supply - the precious lifeblood of the land - to force her hand. But that was before a mysterious, lone gunman called Lassiter showed up...

The Father of the Genre

If Zane Grey's books sound like cliche cowboy stories, it's because he invented the genre. His writing conveys an authentic voice of the times about which he wrote. If you don't Westerns, you probably won't like it. If you like that period in history, this is as good as it gets. This particular recording is lower quality. However, the narrator is a delightful story teller. I recommend the book and this particular production.

Good, fun read (Listen)

This is the first western I had ever listened to, and must admit I had many negative preconceptions of what to expect. To my surprise this was a deep work which focuses of many important issues including role and treatment of women in society.

I was very impressed with the style of writing and beautiful descriptions of the rigid west, which Grey wrote from first hand experience. Some of his characters can come across as caricatures, but this can be leveled even at greats such as Dickens.

Overall, an excellent audio book and introduction to the works of Zane Grey. Buka?s narration is beautiful and he poses enough variation to bring all the character vividly to life.
