Perhaps this book leans more to the romance than the west. However, one cannot be faulted if they expect Gene Autry or Roy Rogers to appear. While most ride on horses, the Thurmans do own a car, and the telephone is available on a somewhat limited bases, just like in those movies. But pretty eastern belle Georgianna Stockwell is in for quite a culture change when she ventures out to Arizona to live with big sister and school teacher Mary. Truth is Georgie became a bit much for the parents to handle and off she went. Arriving in Tonto Basin she is idolized by all the cowboys, but she is a little forward for their customs, and gets trapped by the ways of her past, while not knowing how to recognize and accept the love of the most decent man in the Tonto Basin.

I first read this book while in public school many years ago and it is still enjoyable. The characters male/female behaviors and moral codes are clearly tied to the time period reflected in the author's lifetime and would be out-of-context in a contemporary novel, but reflective of a simpler time when society's choices were also less complex. For fans of western novels few writers can equal the romantic content and action of a Zane Grey book!
  • Hra
Well written, with better human interaction depicted than many westerns. Western buff's will find something here and even those who don't normally read westerns will find a bit of recreational reading.

Its author dead before WWII began, this is a work that tries to frame feminism within the moral constructs of the day, with mixed results. The book is written simp!y, with jargon and references used commonly at the time, but it's a key piece for those readers keen to see where modern patriarchy had roots in popular culture.

I have been reading Zane Grey's books since 1959! Never happened to read this one before, but it was as good as ever. The descriptions, while lengthy, are colorful and well-drawn. The people are real: flawed, at times, but definite personalities. Thoroughly enjoyable book.
  • Made-with-Love
This was a good western. Not the gun fighting kind but the western family. I don't care for western as such, but this was a good read. Probably worth more than my four stars.
  • Geny
This is the first book by Zane Grey I have ever read. My husband has read every one except this one . I like the many adjectives he uses to describe a scene, person, thing,or any thing. It almost, puts you in the center of whatever is going on.
I would reccomend this to a high school student.
A great western to read in a couple days.
