Helen Sheppard's arrival at Fort Henry on the Ohio frontier comes at a time when outlaws are being driven from the land by determined bordermen like Jack Zane, who have no time for women in the lonely lives. There is something about Helen, however, that unsettles Zane's ways and drives him on a last trail in pursuit of the vilest and most desperate outlaws he has ever encountered on the frontier.

About the Author:

Legendary author Zane Grey is known as the greatest storyteller of the American West. He was a major force in shaping the myths of the Old West. The author of more than 90 novels, there are over 40 million copies of his books in print. Among his most popular works are: Riders of the Purple Sage, and The Lone Star Ranger which was the basis for the television series and movie, The Lone Ranger. Many famous actors got their start in films based on Zane Grey novels, including: Gary Cooper, William Powell, Richard Arlen, Buster Crabbe, Shirley Temple and Fay Wray.

From School Library Journal:

YA--Helen Sheppard and her father left Williamsburg, VA, to start a new life in the Ohio Valley. Her father's friend, Col. Ebenezer Zane, met them at Fort Henry after a terrifying close encounter with Indians that ended peacefully when two bordermen, Jonathan Zane and Lew Wetzel, stepped out of the forest to rescue them. Helen is intrigued by Jonathan Zane and he with her. As the story unfolds, this love affair mingles with the tale of the early days of the Ohio Valley. Indian resentment against the encroaching white men, an obsessive lover, horse rustlers, and plain folks trying to build homesteads out of the wilderness are brought to life by Grey's fine storytelling skills. This is a reprint of the last volume of the author's "Ohio River Trilogy," published in 1909; however, the book stands alone. An interesting foreword written by Grey's son, Loren, tells much about the writer. A good story that would make great historical fiction reading for an American-history assignment.
