The Rainbow Trail
A RomanceBook - 1995
Originally published in 1915, The Rainbow Trail is the sequel to Riders of the Purple Sage (also a Bison Book). At the end of that famous novel, a huge boulder had rolled down to shut off the entrance to Surprise Valley, leaving Lassiter, Jane Withersteen, and little Fay Larkin to a singular fate. Twenty years later a lanky Illinois preacher named John Shefford, disillusioned with the narrow-mindedness of his congregation, appears in Arizona. At a "sealed-wife" village, where Mormons hide the practice of polygamy from the federal government, he picks up the trail of the grown-up Fay. Thus begins an exciting story of captivity, treachery, and last-minute escape. Critics praised Zane Grey's trademarks: his depictions of action and his lush descriptions of the Old West. In The Rainbow Trail , the former dentist who became the most popular western writer of all time is under "the spell of the desert."
