Riders of the Purple Sage

Zane Grey ✓ 7 characters Riders of the Purple Sage characters Æ 7 Initially published in 1912 and the first of Zane Grey's many bestsellers this stirring tale of adventure in the high country established the prototype for western novels of the twentieth century The plot's focus is a pro. Reading Zane Grey s 1912 Riders of the Purple Sage is a little bit disconcertingExpecting a western and it is I also got an illustration of religious intolerance and prejudice Set in Utah in the 1870s the local political and economic powers that be are Mormon and everyone else is not Mormon Throwing around some big fish in a little pond clout the local uber Mormons make trouble for our damsel in distress and the archetypal clad in black loner gunman Told a little differently and this is a sensitive and revealing character study of group dynamics with organized religion as a change agent Told as it is and it devolves into a melodramatic soap opera I am reminded of Mark Twain s funny descriptions of Brigham Young s household shenanigans in Roughing ItAnd that leads to the second observation Akin to John Ford s 1962 film The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance starring John Wayne and James Stewart Riders of the Purple Sage is that most rare of westerns and inexplicably a chamber western Most of the action either takes place inside or in an isolated scene easily composed on a stage Much of the conflict is the relationships between characters It is a romanceAnd in a sense are not many adventure stories romantic Change the names and settings and this could be a Japanese samurai story Change it some and it could be a story from the middle ages or a Byronic fugue set in Greece Or even a space opera set on some distant planetAnd further in relation to science fiction fantasy romances the language used and sentence structure were reminiscent of Edgar Rice Burroughs which is somewhat understandable sense both Burroughs and Grey were writing in the early 1900s

Zane Grey ✓ 7 characters Riders of the Purple Sage characters Æ 7 Ud young heroine who's determined to defend her Utah ranch She stands alone against the villains who rustle and stampede her cattle until a stranger rides into the territory Notorious as the scourge of Mormon transgress. Set in 1871 published in 1912 This story is far than a western adventure although it is surely that There are deep and tender relationships among the characters including impressive and moving portrayals of the two women who are central to the story There are also many matchless descriptions of the magnificent western landscape But what is most powerful is the scathing denunciation of the vicious Mormon practices of control exercised against anyone who stands up against the leadership particularly a woman If these descriptions are true and I have no reason to believe they are not it is a truly disgusting portrait How long did it take the Mormons to grow past that history or do remnants still persist I am struck that the description of the Mormons in 1871 is like that of other controlling religions and cults in the past and today

Zane Grey ✓ 7 characters Riders of the Purple Sage characters Æ 7 Ors the stranger stays on to assist in the inevitable showdown and romance blooms amid the canyons and cottonwoods A classic of American frontier fiction Riders of the Purple Sage teems with color authenticity and thrills. This isn t really a review because the only thing I remember about this book is that I read it over fifty years ago Probably ought to read it again I m sure it would be fun Better yet I now have two other books by Grey The Desert of Wheat and Western Union I picked them up a couple months ago when I visited The Country Bookshop in Plainfield Vermont just to see the place where a dear friend of mine now passed away had worked for many years The books were in a large bookcase outside the shop on a covered porch labelled Free Really Free It would be interesting to see what I would feel about Grey s writing style now that I ve spent five decades reading scores of many accomplished and literary authorsPerhaps it wouldn t stand up to that five star vague recollection Previous review A Firing OffenseNext review Ghosts of BelfastMore recent review Previous library review New Hampshire Robert FrostNext library review It Can t Happen Here Sinclair Lewis
