Grand Memories
I read a lot of Zane Grey and Louis L’amour growing up in Nevada. I particularly liked this one for the main character but had great respect for the whole stable of characters. Vernacular speech was also very appropriate. One small quote and I’ll stop so I don’t give it all away. “”There is only one God, an’ Him I beseech in my humble office for the woman an’ man I have just wedded in holy bonds. Bless them an’ watch them an’ keep them through all the comin’ years.”

Milt Dorn is a quiet man. He wasn’t looking for trouble that day in the deep mountain forest, but trouble found him. Dorn overheard an ambitious rancher plotting with an outlaw to kidnap the daughters of the owner of a neighboring spread. If he acted quickly, Dorn hoped he could save the girls by spiriting them away before the outlaw’s gang took them off the stage on the way to town. But now the gang’s begun a ruthless search of the forest, determined to find their prey…and kill anyone who tries to stop them!

When this powerful tale of adventure, danger, romance, and hope was first published—under the title Man of the Forest—it was dramatically different from what Zane Grey had originally written. Long passages had been removed, other passages written by someone else were inserted, and the hero’s name had been changed to Dale. Now, restored from Grey’s original manuscript, this wonderful novel can finally be enjoyed the way its author actually wrote it.
