I will also add that I found myself skimming the lengthy descriptions of Arizona, mostly because I've never been and some of the imagery was a little hard for me to visualize. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and I definitely feel like that applies here.
Overall, it was a great love story (which I admit I am a sucker for) that was hard for me to put down, and at the end, I wished it would continue. Because of that, I've already downloaded a handful of other works by Zane Grey to read.
The downside of the novel for me is just a little bit too much "philosophy" out of the post WW1 era. Grey harps a little to much on his ideal American Woman, American Family, the contrast between the idle rich in New York and the working folks out on the range in The West. There is way too much writing on the plight of W.W.I vets when they returned to America. But in spite of a lot of pages devoted to teaching Grey's message there is a wonderful romantic story to be enjoyed.
Bless Grey for taking up the cause back in the day, it must not have been very popular to do so at the time, but it got weary hearing one of the primary characters wax on and on about that issue. In addition, I had a real problem with the ending...suffice to say it would not have played out that way. He wrote better books.
again. Thank you Kindle.The Call of the Canyon
I never know how badly WWI vets were treated so that probably needed to be said and some of it might apply today.
I loved the ending of this book, though it seemed to be over pretty abruptly. I do intend to read more Zane Grey.

It's my first Zane Grey book. It was recommended by a friend and it did not disappoint. I am from that area of Arizona so it made the visual descriptions all the more fun to read. Read morePublished 2 months ago by JZ
