This review is from: "Nevada" A Romance of the West (Hardcover)
I recently ran onto an old 1928 version of "Nevada" by Zane Grey, an ex-library hardcover that I had somehow missed in my youth. Starting with action, it keeps the reader entertained and on their toes, all the way from page 1 to the end on page 365. The main character, Nevada, is an easy-going kind-hearted cowboy who was (and still is) the infamous Jim Lacey, a noted pistolero of many of the western states. Nevada, or Jim Lacey, interacts with members of the Ide family, especially Ben Ide and his younger sister, Hettie. Starting in California, the storyline meanders southeast, eventually ending in Arizona and centers around the Mogollon Rim. Readers who loved Mr. Grey's beautiful and accurate descriptions will be pleased to find them again. There is a sprinkling of words and phrases that might be spelled differently than what you are used to; it's just a gentle reminder of prose of that era. With good plot and twists, it's well worth the trouble of finding.
