While not a huge fan of Westerns, I occasionally challenge myself to read them.

I really liked this book. The descriptions of the scenery are wonderful and I knew most of the places he was describing. I've even paid for gas in Alladin, Wyoming once, tiny little town, but interesting.

I liked the main characters as well. I though Martha Ann (which happens to be my sisters name as well) was rather foolish at first, but grew up rather fast.

All in all, I liked this book and will be reading more of
I always heard that Grey was the quintessential Western author, but this book certainly did not meet my expectations. The characters were a little predictable, and the women a little too spunky. It was also a little cheesy. But I guess all Westerns pretty much follow a "formula."
Couldn't make it on this one. I wanted to try it because I saw my grandfather read Grey. I suppose if one had actually lived during or right after this time period it might be more interesting but personally I'd rather watch grass grow.
As my little brother put it, "This is the best romance."

And I will admit: it is.

Plus the girl in it is so stubborn it makes my heart proud.

Pearl Zane Grey was an American author best known for his popular adventure novels and stories that presented an idealized image of the rugged Old West. As of June 2007, the Internet Movie Database credits Grey with 110 films, one TV episode, and a series, Dick Powell's Zane Grey Theater based loosely on his novels and short stories.
