Majesty's Rancho was okay but not one of the best books by Zane Grey I've read. I think his earlier books are better than his later ones, and this one was hampered by the fact that it's a sequel of sorts to The Light of the Western Stars, which I haven't read. Majesty's Rancho was published 24 years later and is about the daughter of the romantic pair from the first book.

Also, for some reason I have more trouble with the racism in books written in the 1930s than I do in books written at the begi
The sequel to Light of the Western Stars, a wonderful romance and fun Western adventure that made me miss the wide open spaces of home.
Majesty's Rancho is the sequel to The Light of Western Stars, both by Zane Grey. While I felt that the latter left me unsatisfied, after reading Majesty's Rancho, I felt complete.

So glad I have my own copy.
This book is part 2 if light of the western stars
I know I enjoyed it, but can't remember.......
