Zane Grey is an American icon, the premier chronicler of the West, and the writer who first brought the frontier to life in all its gritty glory. In this classic western, frontier legend Buffalo Jones won't back down from the most dangerous hunt of all. . . Big, brash and fearless, Buffalo Jones is in pursuit of the greatest mountain lion ever spotted in the remote Arizona desert. Determined to bring the beast home alive, Jones leads a colorful band of brothers into a wild land, across the Colorado River to Buckskin Mountain at the red mesa rim of the Grand Canyon. But while Jones has foresworn all killing, even smashed his rifle on a wagon wheel in a vow to save the species, he and his men are entering a fight for their lives. If Apaches, stampedes of wild horses or rattlesnakes don't get them, another enemy will: roaming packs of the one beast who fears no man. . . "In a changing world it is comforting. . .and entertaining to spend a little while in the company of Zane Grey." -- New York Times "Zane Grey epitomized the mythical West that should have been." -- True West "Grey was a champion of the American wilderness and the men and women who tamed the Old West."-- Booklist

display_descriptionBuffalo Jones needs no introduction to American sportsmen, but to these of my readers who are unacquainted with him a few words may not be amiss. He was born sixty-two years ago on the Illinois prairie, and he has devoted practically all of his life to the pursuit of wild animals. It has been a pursuit which owed its unflagging energy and indomitable purpose to a singular passion, almost an obsession, to capture alive, not to kill. He has caught and broken the will of every well-known wild beast native to western North America. Killing was repulsive to him. He even disliked the sight of a sporting rifle, though for years necessity compelled him to earn his livelihood by supplying the meat of buffalo to the caravans crossing the plains. At last, seeing that the extinction of the noble beasts was inevitable, he smashed his rifle over a wagon wheel and vowed to save the species. For ten years he labored, pursuing, capturing and taming buffalo, for which the West gave him fame, and the name Preserver of the American Bison. As civilization encroached upon the plains Buffalo Jones ranged slowly westward; and to-day an isolated desert-bound plateau on the north rim of the Grand Canyon of Arizona is his home. There his buffalo browse with the mustang and deer, and are as free as ever they were on the rolling plains.
