Publisher's Summary

In this 1920 best seller, Milt Dale, a lone camper, overhears a conversation that persuades him to leave his forest paradise to save a young woman from certain doom.

After narrowly escaping a kidnapping plot, Milt leads Helen and her kid sister deep into the perceived safety of the forest. The kidnappers are still on their trail to complete their mission but the man of the forest isn't about to let anyone kill Helen and take possession of her uncle's ranch.

    "Great book."

    Not too keen on the narrator but the story is one of Zane Grey's best in my opinion. Recommend it.

    "Don’t bother."

    TECHNICAL: Gets a point for not adding music. Loses a point for preceding the story with the author’s bio.
    NARRATION: Poor. Falsetto used for females was dreadful. Pacing was singsong and annoying.
    AUTHORCRAFT: I’ll never bother with another title from this author. The story was more suited to a short story. Contains a great deal of boring filler. There are blatant errors in plot that I can’t describe without spoiling. Characters are shallow and inconsistent. They occasionally spout brief bouts of saccharine philosophy then bounce back to monosyllabic interaction. Even allowing for the period when it was written, the dialog was choppy and sappy.
