Description:

In his later work, Grey portrayed Mormonism more neutrally -- but here, in this book, those evil polyandering men are villains, plain and simple. Well, ewww -- there's a reason why the Mormons generally gave it up, and don't think being part of the union was really all there was to it. Really, gross! That said, here in "Riders of the Purple Sage" -- and in the sequel, "The Rainbow Trail" -- the Mormon men take it on the chin. They're heavies, here -- villains who use their religion as an excuse for greed and lust. Great adventure for those who don't mind thinking about the development of mores in the twentieth century . . .

Zane Grey was born Pearl Zane Gray in 1872, in Zanesville, Ohio. He studied dentistry at the University of Pennsylvania, married Lina Elise Roth in 1905, then moved his family west where he began to write novels. The author of 86 books, he is today considered the father of the Western genre, with its heady romances and mysterious outlaws. Riders of the Purple Sage (1912) brought Grey his greatest popular acclaim. Other notable titles include The Light of Western Stars (1914) and The Vanishing American (1925). An extremely prolific writer, he often completed three novels a year, while his publisher would issue only one at a time. Twenty-five of his novels were published posthumously. His last, The Reef Girl, was published in 1977. Zane Grey died of heart failure on October 23 in Altadena, California, in 1939.
