Three classics of the western genre by the greatest of its founders
Zane Grey is the most famous writer in westerns, a founder of the genre. His works have been made into more than one hundred movies and his stories have endured for a century, influencing all others in the genre.
Three fine, characteristic works are included in this omnibus: To the Last Man, the story of Arizonas Pleasant Valley War—an historic brutal family feud that ended in universal slaughter; The Mysterious Rider, a romantic adventure featuring Hell Bent Wade, a basically good man with a violent temper that leads him to murder—and redemption; and The Lone Star Ranger, the tale of a youth turned gunman turned Texas Ranger—and perhaps the spark that inspired that mythic character, The Lone Ranger.
“[Grey] knows the West.”
--The New York Herald
“[A] masterpiece of its kind…. Replete, rounded, rich in every feature which pertains to the genre in question. [Grey] reaches out to the full length of his stride."
--Publishers Weekly on The Mysterious Rider
