Summary

Alone again! Just like his orphaned boyhood. Those are Nevada's thoughts as he turns from the only home and happiness he has ever known. But it had all been a lie, at least on his part. He had been hiding his true identity from his best friend, Ben, and the woman he loved, Hettie. They knew him as Nevada, a man they care for and respected, when in truth he was a wandering fugitive gunman, notorious from Nevada clear to Tombstone, Arizona. And now he had done what he swore never do again, he had killed not one, but three men.

But he didn't regret it; he had done it to save his friend Ben from being branded a rustler and going to prison. His sacrifice would now allow Ben to be free, to prosper, and to marry the love of his life. But the price he must now pay is a living hell. A life alone, a life as his real self, Notorious Outlaw Jim Lacy, but worst of all, a life without his best friend, Ben, and his most precious Hettie. Thus begins the exciting and emotional sequel to Zane Grey's The Forlorn River.

Romance novel wearing chaps

I was struck by the lovesick cowboy and his shattered dream of love theme that ran so strongly through the book. That coupled with Zane Gray’s flowery narrative made me think of what is disparagingly referred to as chick lit. It’s ironic that westerns like this have been primarily the domain of male readers. It appears guys have secretly been swooning over their cowboy heroes’ love stories behind us girls’ backs all this time. The story was too predictable and the reading of the female parts too simpering for my taste. But all-in-all, it was pleasant enough.

good reading

Very good story. Zane Gray was a master of descriptive writing. Sondericker interprets Grey's words with ex cellent interpretation.
