Format: Audio Cassette
Upon the death of his uncle, Ernest Selby (a young man from Iowa) inherits the Red Rock Ranch in Arizona. When he learns that the ranch's twenty thousand cattle have dwindled to six thousand he suspects foul play. In order to investigate these strange circumstances, Ernest decides to go under cover and lands a job on his own ranch, posing as a tenderfoot cowboy. As he makes friends, enemies, and courts the haughty daughter of the crooked foreman, Ernest learns to enjoy cowboy life. He knows that his charade must end eventually, but not until he can find the truth behind the disappearance of so many cattle -- and claim the hear of Miss Anne Hepford. The Dude Ranger is vintage Zane Grey and this unabridged, five cassette audiobook edition is artfully narrated by William Dufris. The Dude Ranger will be greatly appreciated by those who enjoy a good western in the Zane Grey manner.

Format: Paperback
This book is mis-titled; it should be, The Dude Rancher, as Ernest Selby is a greenhorn from Iowa who inherits an Arizona ranch from his uncle, only to find himself pitted against a crooked foreman and his band of outlaws. Many are his trials and tribulations--some quite comic--which he has to overcome after pretending to be a cowboy on his arrival. The foreman, John Hepford, Anne's father and Selby's love interest, is suspected of dishonesty by Selby's partner, Nebraskie Kemp, who has taken a liking to Selby after an initial disliking. All in all this is an entertaining book, fast paced, easily read, no inherent, hidden plot devices, a simple story told well by the master of western fiction.

This story was first published in McCall's magazine in 1930 before finally seeing book publication in 1951 because of the large backlog of Grey's work. And whether first edtion Harpers or G&D's Great Western Edition either will be a fine addition to anyone's library of his work.
