Riders of the Purple Sage tells the story of Jane Withersteen and her battle to overcome persecution by members of her polygamous Mormon fundamentalist church. A leader of the church, Elder Tull, wants to marry her. Withersteen gets help from a number of friends, including Bern Venters and Lassiter, a notorious gunman and killer of Mormons. She struggles with her "blindness" to the evil nature of her church and its leaders, and tries to keep Venters and Lassiter from killing the adversaries who are slowly ruining her.

Über den Autor

Zane Grey, born Pearl Zane Gray on January 31, 1872, was a pivotal figure in shaping the identity of the Western genre in American literature. He initially pursued dentistry as a profession after graduating from the University of Pennsylvania in 1896. However, his passion for writing and the great outdoors would eventually steer him to become one of the early 20th century's bestselling authors. Grey's novels are characterized by their vivid descriptions of the American West's landscapes, the complexity of his characters, and the moral dilemmas they face. His most famous work, 'Riders of the Purple Sage' (1912), is often cited as one of the most significant Western novels and played a considerable role in popularizing the genre. Grey's narrative style combined adventure with romanticism and was instrumental in the formation of the Western hero archetype. He was a prolific writer, authoring over 90 books which continued to be beloved by readers long after his death on October 23, 1939. Grey's work remains central in discussions about the mythologization of the American frontier and has influenced a swath of cultural productions, from film adaptations to comic books, cementing his legacy as an icon of American literature.
