Product Description

From AudioFile

Arizona Ames did not set out to make his mark as a gunfighter--it just happened. O'Neill's slow, soft speech perfectly portrays Ames. Actor-teacher O'Neill has a low-key, pleasant voice that strains, at times, to feminize voices for Arizona's conquests. In typical Grey fashion, Arizona not only removes the bad guys, but he charms the ladies, spoken for or not. O'Neill ably moves from Texas drawl to blustery Irish accent to down-home good old boy. He also has a knack for making Grey's sometimes unusual word choices sound natural. S.C.A. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

One of my favorite westerns. March 26 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
If you like westerns you will love this one. I have read some of his books, (it will take a while to get through them all!) and this is a good read! A story about a good man at heart with a bad reputation. Nevada and The Thundering Herd are two others worth looking for as well.

Fiddlefooted March 1 2012
By Charles Wheeler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Zane Grey loved the Tonto Basin country of Arizona, and the stories he wrote about this area were based on stories the old timers who lived back then told him. Whether this is one of these or not is subject to debate; but what can be said is: The characters depicted and the ways they spoke are authentic to the time and place. Zane Grey has been overly criticized for his use of colloquialisms and phonetically spelled words, but he wrote it the way it sounded to him. He also has been accused of racism because he used the "N" word. But as explained in "Zane Grey: A Study in Values Above and Beyond the West" by Dr. Charles Pfeiffer, Zane Grey only used the word in dialogue and never in his prose, so it was his characters who were speaking that way. So to label Zane Grey as anti-Negro is blatantly wrong and inaccurate. You will find both broad-based speech and references to blacks in this book written in the late 1920's, but do not let that dissuade you from reading this novel. No, this is not the best ZG book, but it is considered one of his finest hero characters. McCall's magazine printed the initial offering of this work for the public, and for a "ladies'" magazine to offer it, it must have some appeal for the female readership. And it does!
