The Last of the Plainsmen

Zane Grey, chronicler of the greatest adventures of the West, and Buffalo Jones, last of the plainsmen, that tough breed who followed their dreams west, into the empty spaces of the untamed heart of the country. The land draws these men.

The unsettled West is fast-disappearing, along with the wild creatures who call it home. This historical novel chronicles the last mission of the last of the plainsmen, the adventure that brought the West to vivid life for Zane Grey: track buffalo, mustang, and cougar, and bring them back, not as trophies, but alive and kicking!

The Last of the Great Scouts

The life story of Colonel William F. Cody, "Buffalo Bill," as told by his sister, Helen, and Zane Grey. This biographical novel begins with Bill's boyhood in Iowa and his first encounter with an Indian. We see him as a pony express rider, then near Fort Sumter as Chief of the Scouts, and later engaged in the most dangerous Indian campaigns. There is also an account of the travels of Cody's famous Wild West Show. Few other characters in public life make a stronger appeal to the imagination of America than Buffalo Bill, whose daring and bravery made him famous.
