Three classics of the western genre by the greatest of its founders
Zane Grey is the most famous writer in westerns, a founder of the genre. His works have been made into more than one hundred movies and his stories have endured for a century, influencing all others in the genre.
Three fine, characteristic works are included in this omnibus: To the Last Man , the story of Arizona's Pleasant Valley War--an historic brutal family feud that ended in universal slaughter; The Mysterious Rider , a romantic adventure featuring Hell Bent Wade, a basically good man with a violent temper that leads him to murder--and redemption; and The Lone Star Ranger , the tale of a youth turned gunman turned Texas Ranger--and perhaps the spark that inspired that mythic character, The Lone Ranger.
