A Western StoryBook - 2010
Jack Hare is an Easterner who has come West for his health. In Salt Lake City he is mistaken by Dene's outlaw gang as a spy for the cattlemen and becomes a hunted man. He is found, suffering from exhaustion and exposure, in the rough country outside White Sage by the wealthy Mormon rancher, August Naab. Taken in by Naab and nursed back to health, Hare becomes aware that Naab's holdings are being threatened by both Dene's rustlers and an unscrupulous Gentile land-grabber named Holderness.Zane Grey's vivid evocation of the Painted Desert in this story is surely one of his finest literary achievements.
