Valley of Wild Horses by Zane Grey

Valley of Wild Horses - Zane Grey

Read by Vincenza – Intrigued by the cover I just had to pick this book up and see what it was about.  Oh, a western! Zane Grey!! OK, I’ll read the first paragraph and see what it’s like.  Then I was hooked.  It is only with a well-written book that the language draws me in, and this book had the language, the larger than life characters, the soft purple hues of the Painted Desert all in the first paragraph.  I was hooked.   This book speaks of true mate ship, of good people and bad people and good people who do bad things then redeem themselves through sacrifice and overcoming adversity.  Great story.  Pity about the cover!
