Zane Grey (January 31, 1872 – October 23, 1939) was an American author best known for his popular adventure novels and stories that presented an idealized image of the American frontier. This is one of his stories. Loner Milt Dale seeks solitude in the wild mountains of Arizona, and instead finds himself rescuing two young women from a kidnapping plot. He must lead the timid Helen and her wild hearted sister Bo away from danger, and try not to fall in love along the way. Leading them away from manmade danger, exposing them to unaccustomed rigor on mountain trails, Dale imparts his rugged philosophy. Beyond the forest, Beasley and Snake Anson are still waiting to carry out their evil plot.
