The Lone Star Ranger is a Western novel published by Zane Grey in 1915.

The Lone Star Ranger is a Western novel published by Zane Grey in 1915. The book takes place in Texas, the Lone Star State, and several main characters are Texas Rangers, a famous band of highly capable law enforcement officers. It follows the life of Buck Duane, a man who becomes an outlaw and then redeems himself in the eyes of the law. The novel was dedicated to the Texas Ranger John Hughes.

The Lone Star Ranger is a western novel that is set in Texas and centers around Buck Duane, a former outlaw who is trying to redeem himself. Zane Grey was a prolific American writer of historical and western novels. Grey's books were a big influence on the idealization of the American frontier and his book Riders of the Purple Sage is considered by many to be the greatest western novel ever written.

When I saw the movie "The Stalking Moon," I wanted to read the book on which the movie was based and I did. It was good and thus lead me to read another book by the same author. I thoroughly enjoyed his book of short stories of the old west. One person found this helpful.

You see, Bland sells thousands of cattle in Cuba. Euchre's shack sat against the first rise of the slope of thewall, and Duane, by climbing a few rods, got a view of the whole valley. Assuredly it was an outlaw settle meet. He saw a good many Mexicans,who, of course, were hand and glove with Bland. Also he saw enormousflat-boats, crude of structure, moored along the banks of the river.

great book
  • Garne
The Longarm Series of western novels bring the western culture to life. This is a well written book that is easy to read and hard to put down. Texas at its best!
  • Whitebinder
Two women come out West - good, strong willed, pure women. Check. Good man or men turned bad by others. Check. Good hearted, swift gun drawing Rangers. Check. Rustlers. Check. Romance. Check.
I grew up reading Zane Grey westerns. They were the first books I tested my reading skills on as a kid, next to classical sci-fi, so I kind of know his style of writing, the way his characters work and, frankly, how he thinks.
While I have to say that this book had great characters and beautiful settings, the action was lacking. It was slow. Or I should say it was slower than normal, as Zane Grey liked to take his time when it came to build up and delivery.
I would suggest this book only to people who already know his style or to people who like old fashion westerns.

This book, parts of which were published in the 1970's as The Rustlers of Pecos County using different character and place names, is an okay book. It is one of only a handful of Zane Grey "fiction" books written in first person, and my opinion is, Zane Grey didn't handle first person prose very well when writing fiction. But aside from that this is a basic shoot-em up written early in his career, rejected by Harpers editors, and eventually combined with another book, Last of the Duanes, to form what many consider one of Zane Grey's best, The Lone Star Ranger. To fashion and custom of the times, this book is historically accurate and well crafted, but it just lacks the one element to make it great which I have yet to put my finger on. But it's Zane Grey, so how bad can it be? It's not bad, there are others just better. So, I say, buy it and read it for yourself and give it your rating.

Zane Grey delivers a fantastic read full of archatypical Texas characters. The prose is a little dated, but hey, it is a period tale by a vintage western master. If you like stories about the Texas Rangers you'll really enjoy this book. The plot has Rangers, rustlers and two beautiful women new to the Texas Country. All of these elements combine with a secret Ranger mission to the Big Bend badlands, an area notorious for the roughest, meanest hombres in the Old West. Pick this one up to see how Grey uses his unique prose, scenic locations and numerous -- sometimes predictable but never dull -- plot twists to tell this action-packed western.

This book is excellent! Unlike many "pulp" novels today, Grey uses an extensive vocabulary and makes the reader "read." With his mastery of English, his descriptions of human emotions draws you into the mind of Russ (the main character). This book should be required reading of young people, especially young men. The strong moral codes presented in it are inspirational and timeless.
