Legendary writer Zane Grey earned legions of devoted fans with his gritty westerns. In To the Last Man, he dramatizes the events of the Pleasant Valley War of Arizona, a bloody feud that nearly wiped two families off the face of the Earth. Jean Isbel has settled in Oregon and is growing comfortable with his new home when an urgent letter arrives from his father. Trouble is brewing in Arizona between the Isbel cattlemen and the Jorth clan of sheepmen. Rushing to his father’s side, Jean arrives just before the first bullets start flying. But matters are complicated when Jean and Ellen Jorth, daughter of the sheepmen’s leader, fall in love. Jean will have to balance his love for Ellen with his duty to family.
Grey’s depiction of this historical event spares no details in describing the devastation this feud caused. Ed Sala’s dramatic narration carries you back to the old West, when gunmen were determined to fight to the last man.

Based on a true and very exciting old west story, I was anticipating something right up my alley.
But... This was a terrible book. Seriously. I really cannot understand why I finished it other than I thought it would get better at some point. And, although it did, it was with the words "the end". It was really bad. Painfully boring and seemingly never ending. If you have time to listen to this book, do something else.
