How is this book unique? Font adjustments & biography included Unabridged (100% Original content) Illustrated About The Rainbow Trail by Zane Grey The Rainbow Trail, also known as The Desert Crucible, is Western author Zane Grey's sequel to Riders of the Purple Sage. Originally published under the title The Rainbow Trail in 1915, it was re-edited and re-released in recent years as The Desert Crucible with the original manuscript that Grey submitted to publishers. The novel takes place ten years after events of Riders of the Purple Sage. The wall to Surprise Valley has broken, and Jane Withersteen is forced to choose between Lassiter's life and Fay Larkin's marriage to a Mormon. Both novels are notable for their protagonists' mild opposition to Mormon polygamy, but in The Rainbow Trail this theme is treated more explicitly. The plots of both books revolve around the victimization of women in the Mormon culture: events in Riders of the Purple Sage are centered on the struggle of a Mormon woman who sacrifices her wealth and social status to avoid becoming a junior wife of the head of a local church, while The Rainbow Trail contrasts the older Mormons with the rising generation of Mormon women who will not tolerate polygamy and Mormon men who do not seek it.

Der Mann liegt mitten auf der Straße, mit dem Gesicht im Staub. Jean Isbel weiß, dass er nicht der erste war und dass er nicht der letzte sein wird in diesem blutigen Krieg, der zwischen Ranchern und Schafzüchtern tobt.Doch hinter all dem steckt weitaus mehr als nur der Kampf um gutes Weideland: Im Pleasant Valley suchen zwei Familien, die eine uralte Fehde zu unversöhnlichen Feinden gemacht hat, eine Entscheidung auf Leben und Tod. Auf der einen Seite steht Gass Isbel mit seinen Söhnen, auf der anderen Colonel Lee Jorth mit seinen verwegenen Männern. Für beide... gibt es kein Zurück mehr.Aber noch schlimmer sind die zweibeinigen Wölfe, die zwischen ihnen stehen...Zane Grey ist einer der bedeutendsten Klassiker unter den Autoren des amerikanischen Western: Sein Roman Bis zum letzten Mann gilt überdies als eines der großen tragischen Werke dieses Genres. Der Apex-Verlag präsentiert diesen Roman in seiner Reihe APEX WESTERN als durchgesehene Neu-Ausgabe, ergänzt um ein Essay von Dr. Karl Jürgen Roth.

The remote, hard-to-reach national monument was supposed to define a limit to Colorado River reclamation but instead was inundated by Lake Powell and the tide of visitors who then could reach the foot of the bridge by boat. Though it is now easily and frequently visited and National Park Service amenities are in place, access to Rainbow Bridge is still an evolving and controversial issue."--Jacket.
