Here's how I got the book...
The orthodontist office is a quarter-circular high vaulted room with 5 chairs right next to each other. The inner walls have huge walnut book shelves decorated with all the cosmetic trimmings of the well to do. It's very impressive. The parents sit along the outer wall and watch the action. I was reading Sackett by Louis L'Amour while Mitch was having his braces tightened for the last time. The Ortho saw what I was reading and asked if I liked it. How do I tell him t
"Wild Horse Mesa" is one of Grey's "lesser" books, but still an enjoyable read. It's a bit of a redo of the distinctly downbeat horse story, "Wildfire." In the latter book, the horse of the title meets a sad end, and the obligatory romantic couple, though together, are in a state of post-traumatic stress--which didn't exist in the early twentieth century. (wink!)

In "Wild Horse Mesa," the tone is distinctly more upbeat, not that this tale doesn't have some gut-wrenching moments. The wild stallion
I love westerns and this one had some excellent description of the area where the 'action' took place. But I wouldn't say there was really that much action.
Not a book I will keep to read again, nor will recommend it to 'western' fans. It's more a romance (not my cup of tea) than a 'real western'.
It did offer some education about wild house catching though.

I think this is the first ever Zane Grey I've read. I started it out of desperation while sitting at a Swap Meet (forgot my book), and my husband had a box of Zane Grey's for sale. I really enjoyed it. Pretty funny, because I remember my dad reading these and I never even thought about trying them myself. Hmm - maybe we need to wait till next summer to sell that box of books.

Great Zane Grey romance-western. I especially loved it because it took place in southern Utah near the Kaiparowits Plateau. The imagery is wonderful and the story is great.

I enjoyed reading it. It was not as exciting as some westerns but the story was extremely captivating.
