Texas. They took the most contrary bunch of frontiersmen, ranchers, farmers, cowpokes, shiftless no-accounts, shootists rascals, and politicians, jumbled them together, and somehow formed a state. They called it Texas, but for defenseless women and children, it was hell.

Texas Rangers. Although they were outnumbered a thousand to one, the Texas Rangers fought a holding acti

This is a good story, but it's very different from other Zane Grey novels I have read. I notice that it's from later in his career, so it makes me wonder if this was one of the books (as has been rumored on other books) where one of his children co-wrote it with him. It has some of his characteristic writing, but the story-telling is uncharacteristic. More emphasis on the love affairs than I can remember in any other Grey novel I've read (but reminds me of the writings of his son [or grandson, ...more

Great read

I love westerns and Zane Grey is a classic in the westerns of the last century. Anyone who likes western action with a little romance mixed in will like this book set in lawless western Texas in the time before law was established when outlaws were the law and no real crime went to court and good citizens were terrorized. The Texas Rangers were fighting for support. Can they succeed or will gang of rustlers drive them out of Pecos badlands.

This book is a partial manuscript (at least in e-reader form). It obviously picks up partway through a story and proceeds to the end. I've read this story under a different Zane Grey title before. This may be an attempt by someone to publish a "new" title and make more money on an unfinished manuscript. Regardless, it is typical Zane Grey western adventure.

One of Grey's finest love stories.

Only Grey can write a love story that isn't full of lurid sex, and still keep the reader spellbound. I know it seems to be to idealistic but surely is what most readers word wish for in their own lives.

The Rustlers of Pecos County had a special hero and typically Zane Grey did a superb job in telling the story about him. I'm sure that you will enjoy how he put it all together as much as I did. No matter how many of his books I read I'll never tire reading them. Read and enjoy!

Good western story about cattle rustlers. Too much romance circa 1917. As always, great description of the terrain and atmosphere. If you are new to this author, Riders of the Purple Sage is the place to start.

First book read on my Kindle Touch.

Zane Grey is one of the great western writers, and this was typical of his writing.

This is my style. A western. A romance. A spellbinding novel capturing the mythos of Texas. Zane Grey is straight forward, descriptive and exciting. One of my favorite of his.
