Zane Grey (1872-1939), born in Ohio, was practicing dentistry in New York when he and his wife published his first novel. Grey presented the West as a moral battleground in which his characters are destroyed because of their inability to change or are redeemed through a final confrontation with their past. The man whose name is synonymous with Westerns made his first trip west in 1907 at age thirty-five. More than 130 films have been based on his work.
Jim Gough's distinctive voice is well known in the Southwest through his hundreds of commercials and radio shows. He has also appeared in such feature films as Urban Cowboy, Places in the Heart, and JFK. A native of Austin, Texas, he can also be found entertaining with his western swing band, the Cosmopolitan Cowboys.From AudioFile:
Gough's distinctive and thoroughly Western voice sets the stage for Grey's fascinating sequel to RIDERS OF THE PURPLE SAGE. These are timeless, articulate stories of the old, untamed Southwest and the Native Americans, Mormons, and Easterners who populated it. As tenderfoot John Shefford wanders through Durango, Tuba City, and Kayenta, Gough lovingly reads Grey's prosaic descriptions of the beauty of the high desert and Navajo culture. His perfectly cadenced reading and accents lend a true storyteller's dimension to this romantic tale. Whether driving, exercising, or just listening, listeners will enjoy this solidly entertaining work. S.C.A. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
