About this title


"As brashly entertaining as they come." --The New York Times

60th Anniversary of the Release of the John Wayne classic

"A ripsnorting Western, as brashly entertaining as they come. Slambang!" --The New York Times on John Ford's The SearchersJohn Ford's The Searchers defined the spirit of America, influenced a generation of film makers, and was named the Greatest Western Movie of All Time by the American Film Institute in 2008. Now, the novel that gave birth to the film returns to print--a timeless work of vivid, raw western fiction and a no-holds-barred portrait of the real American frontier.

From the moment they left their homestead on that scorching Texas day, Martin Pauley and Amos Edwards became searchers. First they had to return to the decimated ranch, bury the bodies of their family, and confront the Comanche who had slaughtered them. Then they set out in pursuit of missing Debbie Edwards. In the years that follow, Amos and Martin survive storms of nature and of men, seeking more than a missing girl, and more than revenge. Relentless, two men become a frontier legend, searching for the one moment, and the one last battle, that will finally set them free...

With a special introduction by original movie cast member Harry Carey, Jr.
