9780140184402: Riders of the Purple Sage (Penguin Twentieth Century Classics)

In the remote border country of South Utah, a man is about to be whipped by the Mormons in order to pressure Jane Withersteen into marrying against her will. The punishment is halted by the arrival of the hero, Lassiter, a gunman in black leather, who routs the persecutors and then gradually recounts his own history of an endless search for a woman abducted long ago by the Mormons. Secrecy, seduction, captivity, and escape: out of these elements Zane Grey built his acclaimed story of the American West. First published in 1912, Riders of the Purple Sage set the pattern for the modern Western and went on to sell over a million copies.

Book Description Penguin Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 304 pages. Dimensions: 7.7in. x 5.0in. x 0.6in.A master of narrative momentum and suspense, Zane Grey sweeps readers into his stories and makes them feel that things are out of control, that boundaries are being burst. InRiders of the Purple Sage, the most famous novel of the American West, Grey creates a hero of epic proportions, a villain of legendary evil and a world in which the landscape is rendered with such force that it seems to express thoughts and feelings, to become a character in its own right. Indeed, Riders of the Purple Sagederives much of its depth and power from passions whose forbidden and overwhelming nature cannot be expressed by human beings and are therefore embodied in the natural world. In his depiction of the relationship between Lassiter, the hero, and Jane Withersteen, Grey breaks other literary barriers: Jane, modelled on the heroines of the nineteenth-century novel, must come to terms with the values expressed by Lassiter - the harsh, masculine values of the twentieth century. Their struggles together represent the tumultuous changes society itself was confronting. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback.
