Milt Dale is the Man of the Forest. Living alone in a camp in the wilderness called Paradise Park, he prefers the company of bears, cougars, and wolves to that of the surrounding ranchers and troublemakers. But one day he overhears a conversation that changes his life and convinces him to leave his wild paradise to save a young woman from certain doom. The pioneer spirit runs in Helen Rayner’s blood, but it may not save her from the nasty end that tough guy Snake Anson has planned for her. To get his hands on her uncle’s ranch, he needs to get rid of Helen—by any means necessary. But luckily for Helen, the Man of the Forest is not about to let that happen.
The Man of the Forest
I have just finished reading this story, it is a wonder filled account of life in the Wild West for a couple of girls.
But more than that it is an account of their impact on the west and the western men they meet.
I couldn’t read this in public because it made me so emotional that it constantly brought tears to my eyes. Perhaps I’m just one of those sentimental guys, but I dare any guy with a heart and a true love for nature and the Wild outdoors to read this without becoming personally affected by Zane’s style of writing.
Great “chick” flick but even for guys ;-).
