Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This is a rousing, old-fashioned tale loosely based on the true story of a little-known chapter of Western history: the deadly feud of the Tonto Basin in Arizona or the Pleasant Valley War. When Jean Isbel answers his father's summons home, he makes a huge mistake for a cattleman's son-he falls for a sheepherder's daughter, Ellen Jorth. Her father is expanding his sheepherding operation, and the stock are grazing down the surrounding range. What begins as the age-old rivalry between cattlemen and sheepherders erupts into a violent war between cattlemen and rustlers masquerading as sheep men, and the two lovers are caught in the middle. Indeed, the violence seems to pause only long enough for the womenfolk to bury their dead before the hogs eat them. While the language is a bit dated, Jim Gough's masterful narration of this exciting story will hold listeners spellbound. Since good Westerns are rather scarce on the ground these days, Blackstone Audio is performing a special service by making this old classic available to a new generation. Highly recommended for all libraries.

4.0 out of 5 stars Based on a true blood feud, you can see where it happened February 15, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Of all of Zane Grey's books, this one rates in my personal top three favorites. The story itself is outstanding. Lots of suspense and gunplay, with a hopeless romance injected to keep your mind engaged. This story is especially good as it is loosely based on an true blood feud which happened in Pleasant Valley, a town in the Tonto Basin area of Arizona. Therefore, you can visit the site, see where Zane set his novel, and know that while Grey's may have been a fictional account, a feud DID happen, right where you are standing. The town is now called Young, by the way, to get rid of the stigma associated with the Pleasant Valley War. During a cross country trip, I took the time to drive out to Young just so I could see for myself where it all happened. I recommend every Zan Grey fan take the time to do so. I also read the account of the actual feud (available at the Tonto Basin Historical Center), and several key elements in Grey's novel are true. There was only one active participant who survived the feud, and the bit about the battle pausing so the ladies could bury their dead husbands to keep hogs from eating the corpses actually happened.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful western classic January 1, 2011
By Karen B
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first Zane Grey book I've read and I loved it.

The story is about a son coming to Arizona to help his cattle-ranching father for a pending feud with sheepherders in the 1870's. On the way there he meets a woman sheep herder and falls in love--only to discover later that she is the daughter of his father's arch enemy.

As the tale unfolds its mixture of action and romance, the book becomes impossible to put down. The detail in which he describes the action scenes leaves you feeling like you are right there in the middle of the gun fight. The romance is sweet and endearing.

At times, some of the descriptions of the landscape seemed a bit wordy, but did not detract from the overall story.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good book - bad history. January 10, 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are a fan of Zane Grey, you will love this book, but don't look for too many facts here. The description of the Mogollon Rim country is beautiful and accurate. However, the details of the Pleasant Valley War are far from the actual history of the event. This is odd, since the events that took place, and the people involved, make exciting reading. If you want the history of the event, you'd be better off reading Arizona's Dark and Bloody Ground, and A Little War of Our Own. You can come to Arizona and do a self guided driving and hiking tour of some of the important places of this war; and when you go to the Angels' Spring Training park, you are very near the spot where the last man, Mr. Tewksbury, shot and killed Mr. Graham.

5.0 out of 5 stars Romance Zane Grey's Way May 12, 2013
Format:Hardcover
The Graham-Tewskbury feud on which this story is based is as legendary out West as the Hatfield-McCoy feud is back East. Zane Grey, of course, adds his own twist to the facts, but over-all this is probably the most accurate accounting there will ever be, as Zane Grey was able to talk to old-timers who were still living and had gone through the feud. The one scene with the hogs is the one most readers will never forget, and is based on fact. The "Romeo and Juliet" part is consistent with other romances written by Grey, and has to be in the story line to make it historical romance, which is what he considered himself to be writing---not westerns! In fact, the word, or term, "western" was not even coined until around 1920. By then Zane Grey had been writing this kind of stories for nearly 20 years. We do an injustice to him when we say, "oh, the writer of westerns" when his name is mentioned. This book is well worth reading, and owning, without a doubt. And these Walter J Black editions are excellent reading copies that last a lifetime if taken care of. Five Star Westerns also has released an unexpergated version of this book titled Tonto Basin which restores the book to Zane Grey's hand written manuscript. But this version will do fine to have and read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Book--Bad Version July 18, 2008
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Kindle version of this novel is almost unreadable due to missing punctuation and run-together sentences. It seems to have been scanned, run through the OCR software, and published without benefit of proofreading and editing. It's a shame, really. It's a rousing story but I'm having a hard time slogging through it due to the poor quality of the text.

A sound basic story of human emotions. A bit unsophisticated in modern terms but hey; what's wrong with that. I would recommend it to young students

5.0 out of 5 stars And the Last Woman June 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Zane did it again, brought us through this story of a family feud with all it's twists and turns. Finishing with a woman admitting her love. I do like his gentle weaving of the threads of a story into a beautiful woman tapestry.
