Written by: Zane Grey

First line: As his goaded horse plunged into the road, Nevada looked back over his shoulder.

Why you should read this book: An outlaw with a heart of gold and a spine of steel, vicious gunslinger Nevada has been tamed by the kindly love of wild horse hunter Ben Ide, and his incomparable sister, Hettie. When Nevada draws his gun and kills again to save Ben’s life and livelihood, his shame at the Ides learning his true identity is so great that he rides off into the wilderness, leaving his friends heartbroken and determined to reunite with him at any cost. In the superlatively dangerous (and beautiful) canyons of Arizona, the characters play a deadly game with the most conniving rustlers ever seen in the wild west.

Why you shouldn’t read this book: The end is pretty much a foregone conclusion.
