Too controversial for publication the way it was written, Five Star is proud to offer for the first time ever, the restored version of Zane Grey's Woman of the Frontier, as it was originally written. In it Logan Huett, a former Army Scout, discovers magnificent Sycamore Cation in central Arizona and wires Lucinda Baker in Missouri with his proposal of marriage. But the crude and lonely pioneer life proves hard for Lucinda, especially when she's raped by an Apache renegade and bears his son.

About the Author

Born in 1875, Zane Grey was raised in Zanesville, Ohio, a town founded by his mother’s family. His passion for the American West was aroused in 1907 when Grey toured the West with Buffalo Jones, a noted hunter and adventurer. Grey published a total of 85 books — popular adventure novels that idealized the Western frontier. Riders of the Purple Sage remains his best-known book. He died in 1939 in California.

I must admit when I first read this book many years ago when titled, 30,000 on the Hoof, there were many questions left unanswered, and several ambiquities one had to try to figure out or rationalize for yourself--like the parentage of one of the sons. And the fact of having the "adopted" daughter learn she is adopted and having feelings for one of her brothers is not so far-fetched in a land of few women in comparison to men, although to many this smacks of incest. The over-all story is the story of a woman telling the struggles of a pioneer family and the title is justified. Zane Grey wrote many of his books from the woman's viewpoint; undoubtedly the reason so many of them were published in the "women's magazines" of the day. His readership was MORE than half women. Perhaps, this is not the best Zane Grey book, but it does display all of his qualities as a writer--great descriptions of landscape, fascinating characters, demanding situations consistent with life, and the celebration of family as a cohesive unit. Tradtional values to be sure. One could only wish more writers would try to emulate Zane Grey. And these re-stored books only add to his mystique and legendary status as the greatest 'western' novelist of all time. Buy it and enjoy it for what it is, not analyize it.
