The Rainbow Trail (1915) is a great story for readers like myself who’ve read and watched Riders of the Purple Sage (1912) and other westerns, as well as other stories about this part of the American West such as Desert Solitaire (1968) and The Monkey Wrench Gang (1975).

Unfortunately I couldn’t give the audio CD five stars because the same actor does all of the voices, including the female voices of Fay and Jane. Great audio recordings have a full cast with multiple voice actors and wonderful special effects. If you listen to as many audio books while driving as I do you know what I’m talking about.

I’ve read a lot of westerns, a lot of Zane Grey and Louis L’Amour stories. Once upon a time I was in a holding company at Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri for a couple of weeks waiting to be shipped overseas. All of the other guys spent their time in the TV and game room, watching or playing video games. I had the reading room all to myself. In that room was a bookshelf full of brand new Zane Grey and Louis L’Amour paperbacks, every story they had ever published, sitting on those shelves unread and unloved. I came very close to boxing them up and shipping them overseas with me.

These days I mostly read and watch good fantasy or science fiction or historical stuff. Last month I reread my favorite five military sci-fi classics: Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein (1959), The Forever War by Joe Haldeman (1974), Armor by John Steakley (1984), Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card (1985), and Old Man's War by John Scalzi (2005). This month I’m reading Under the Dome (2009) by Stephen King. I haven’t seen the TV show.

If you like reading try some of my favorite fantasy and sci-fi authors: Richard Adams, Palo Bacigulupi, Suzanne Collins, Abe Evergreen, Diana Gabaldon, Hugh Howey, George Martin, Brandon Sanderson, John Scalzi, and Andy Weir.

If you’re looking for good stuff to watch consider miniseries like The Astronauts Wives Club (2015), Band of Brothers (2001), Frank Herbert’s Dune (2000), Frank Herbert’s Children of Dune (2003), Into the West (2005), Lonesome Dove (1989), Manhattan (2014-2015), Return to Lonesome Dove (1993), Pride and Prejudice (1995), Taken (2002) and The 10th Kingdom (2000), which are all terrific because they have clear beginnings that establish an objective, then strong middles and conclusive endings where the goal is achieved, like a good novel.

Other shows I’ve really enjoyed include Battlestar Galactica (2004-2009), Breaking Bad (2008-2013), Cowboy Bebop (1998), Firefly (2002), Game of Thrones (2011-2019), Granite Flats (2013-2015), The IT Crowd (2006-2013), Jericho (2006-2008), Merlin (2008-2012), The Prisoner (1967-1968), Rome (2005-2007), Spartacus: Gods of the Arena (2011), Spartacus: Blood and Sand (2010), Stargate: SG-1 (1997-2007), Stargate: Atlantis (2004-2009), Star Trek (1966-1969), Star Trek Voyager (1995-2001), and The Tudors (2007-2010). I didn’t list any contemporary series I’m following that don’t have an end date yet, not conducive to binge watching from beginning to finish.

Zane Grey is an excellent writer. I read Spirit of the Border at age fourteen. His descriptions , physical and emotional, are beautiful and compelling and one always feels so relaxed and comfortable in his company. "The Rainbow Trail ....' expertly completes the story of Lassiter and Jane Withersteen - the pathos and the grief but we rejoice that they are back in civilization - the excellent descriptions of Surprise Valley, the tragedy and triumpf of Fay Larkin, Shefford's strong and honest character and the loyalty and aid of his Indian friend and Mormon friend. There is honour, pathos and some cruelty, battling enormous odds, great bravery, religious intolerance, love in all its beauty and endurance.
Really, a great read, by a master of life in the West.

I did not know until I read this book that he had written a follow up to Riders O the Purple Sage which is my favorite of his. It left you wondering how the 2 characters got out of the hidden valley and what would happen to them. I also wondered what religion the church was and found out it was Mormon. This told a lot about how they got away with polygamy and kept it from the government. Another great book.

This is a story about a young man who has lost his soul but yet tries to regain some hope for the future by following a dream shared by one who escaped the ruthless, rugged and terrors of the Southwest with a beautiful maiden that becomes his wife. This man's dream is to go back and rescue a young child that has growing into her late teens with her family and experience the beauty of the canyon shared by the storyteller. He experiences untold trials and almost looses his life in the process of trying to rescue the family from renegade Indians, robbers, cattle and horse thieves and religious bigots with multiple wives. He is helped along the way by a friendly Mormon, traders and a wise Navajo Indian. The author, Zane Grey, gives a vivid panoramic view of the mountains, meadows full of wildlife and challenges faced in the desert to survive. The book was difficult to put down and enjoyable to read and I highly recommend this book to others.

Zane Grey was always a very descriptive writer. In fact, pages concerning only one aspect of the sky, desert, or people is not unusual for this prolific author. The Four Corners area, and it's mystique, has always fascinated and piqued my interest. The Navajo rode and dominated the desert. The Hopi were farmers who eventually died out, or as many believe, were assimilated into other tribes. Many legends about the "old ones" still circulate.
We enjoy the characters of Jane and Lassiter, and the defrocked minister who needs to forgive himself before he can reach out for religious assurance. The village of Cottonwoods was destroyed by Mormons. Amber Springs was also gone. Venters and the gunman Lassiter became involved in a quarrel between Jane Withersteen and the Mormon Church.
Jane had adopted a beautiful Gentile child named Fay Larkin. The breach between Jane and the Mormons came because of her interest in Gentiles. Venters found a strange girl that he married. He got away, but the others were driven into the canyon. Lassiter rolled the balancing rock, effectively closing the narrow outlet forever. This sealed the wild valley where Fay Larkin would have bloomed into womanhood
The efficacious accomplishment of description by Grey assures the reader, as if, they had been awarded a new expandable eye-opener. The noticeable extravaganza displays his camera-like eye, and, his accuracy of penmanship. The story plot is essential, but Zane Grey's finesse is unmistakable.
