Loved it, First Western book I've read,especially by a Late Author. Due to reading this book I am now reading another Western book, different Author, and not anywere near done (as it has 608 Pages-only at 220).

I would Read it again, I Loved the Story line, and the way it was written. as it wouldn't be published in the 1930's when Zane Grey had Originally wanted it to be. due to Publishing Issues in the 1930's and the way the women were put in this book is really to bad, because it would have be
Why was I shaking my head during this entire book?
I mean, isn't Zane Grey supposed to be a great writer?
So why did this book seem jammed to the hilt with clichés, totally flat characters and the oddest collection of words I've ever heard?

For instance, the characters never "say/said" anything. They "averred" or "ejaculated". In fact, I think the word "ejaculated" was used well over two dozen times --- that's more than Suzie Bright ever dreamed of using it!

Flat. Disjointed. Tried to keep in mind the time it was written, but still struggled. Lucinda felt like a second or third character, not the main character. I got through it. That's about all I can say about it!
It was 5.00 on Audible. A lot like little house on the prairie for big people.

My favorite Zane Grey book that I have read so far.
Great story following a family homesteading on AZ.
