Publisher's Summary

Texas. They took the most contrary bunch of frontiersmen, ranchers, farmers, cowpokes, shiftless no-accounts, shootists, rascals, and politicians, jumbled them together, and somehow formed a state. They called it Texas, but for defenseless women and children, it was hell.

Texas Rangers. Although they were outnumbered a thousand to one, the Texas Rangers fought a holding action against the complete breakdown of law and order, often paying for peace with their lives. But one county held out against attack after attack, a place so mean that a saint would have turned bad.

Into this valley of death rode Ranger Vaughn Steel, hungering for revenge, thirsting for justice, and determined to wipe out the rustlers of Pecos County.

A pleasant listen without suspense

Zane Grey can undoubtedly write...I like his way of telling the story, full of details of actions and characters' thoughts and feelings. A bit disappointing is the plot; the story unfolds smoothly, without any major surprising event. Except for one important revelation, actually not far from the beginning of the book, the rest is highly predictable. Characters are easy to figure out, and so is the story's course and ending. Certainly a pleasant, relaxing reading, but far from a masterpiece.
I would have preferred a younger voice as the narrator of this story, which mainly involves young characters

Rustlers, Romance, Rules & Renewal

This is a tale where even the meandering prose makes me long to have started earlier on this Earth. Full of adventure bounded only by duty and honor and the fear of necessary actions upon those whose assessments matter most. And In a time when it was still possible to ride finally in peace and joy, away from the setting sun.

Will not download

3rd or 4th time I've purchased, only a buck but still ... Tech support useless and a refund more trouble than it's worth - give this one a pass

Let justice be done

The story of a Texas Ranger and a Deputy US Marshal fighting a rustler gang and finding romance in west Texas. The first and last acts were great western storytelling. The climatic shootouts were particularly stellar, but the middle act of the story got bogged down in the double romance storyline to the point my attention started to wane. Maybe not Zane Grey’s best work but still an entertaining story that retains the authentic feel of his version of the Old West.

More of a love story than a western

I've read several Zane Grey stories and enjoyed them all. This one however is lacking. When it's a western it's a good Western. The love story consumes way too much content.
