An Arizona mountain man saves a woman from a bitter range war in this classic western adventure by the author of Riders of the Purple Sage.
Enjoying his solitude in Arizona’s White Mountains, Milt Dale has little reason to descend into town. He has no interest in the gossip and strife of townsfolk, and as a skilled hunter and woodsman, all his needs are met in the splendor of the forest. But while taking shelter from a storm in an abandoned hut, Dale overhears a nefarious plot he cannot ignore.
A local landowner has hired a gang to kidnap the niece of a prominent rancher. When Dale’s warnings go unheeded, he takes it upon himself to protect the young woman and her kid sister. Away from the menace of civilization, Dale brings them to the rugged safety of mountain trails. But beyond the untamed forest, danger awaits.

After attending the University of Pennsylvania on a baseball scholarship, he started a dentistry practice in New York City and wrote in the evenings. An avid outdoorsman, Grey found his inspiration in the American West, and his bestselling novels, including the iconic Riders of the Purple Sage, established the conventions and the enduring popularity of the Western genre.
