Riders of the Purple Sage by Zane Grey

Book Description

In the remote border country of South Utah, a man is about to be whipped by the Mormons in order to pressure Jane Withersteen into marrying against her will. The punishment is halted by the arrival of the hero, Lassiter, a gunman in black leather, who routs the persecutors and then gradually recounts his own history of an endless search for a woman abducted long ago by the Mormons. Secrecy, seduction, captivity, and escape: out of these elements Zane Grey built his acclaimed story of the American West. First published in 1912, Riders of the Purple Sage set the pattern for the modern Western and went on to sell over a million copies.

Books By Author Zane Grey


UK Kirkus Review » When, in 1904, Zane Grey abandoned dentistry in favour of novel writing, the people of Zanesville, Ohio, lost an average orthodontist but the world gained a first-rate story-teller. This is his best-known and most successful work, and the benchmark for all self-respecting writers of westerns. Published in 1912 Riders of the Purple Sage sold over a million copies with its melodramtic tale of leather-clad hero Lassiter intervening to save Jane Withersteen from being married against her will, breaking the paralysing hold that the Mormans have over her.
