In Zane Grey's only Western told from the first person perspective, a U.S. Deputy Marshall helps legendary Texas Ranger Vaugn Steele to clean up the lawless town of Fairfield. Though the town's mayor is in cahoots with a band of outlaws, Steele falls in love with his daughter and the Marshall falls in love with his niece. An unusual psychological depth sets this tale apart from the majority of Westerns.

This book was a good read until Zane Grey started confusing
history with fiction. He has a Captain Macnelly of the Texas
Rangers, who I believe is based on Captain Leander Mcnelly
of those rangers. McNelly is credited with fighting the
fictional Cheseldine gang in the Big bend area. Also, the main
character Buck Duane is credited with killing John Wesley hardin,
instead of the actual killer, John Selman. Sometimes it's ok to mix history
with fiction, but at least make sure the historical parts are accurate.
