Riders of the purple sage.

I am a retired teacher of both English and History. This book makes me wonder how he ever sold anything he wrote. His attention to detail is miserable as noticed when one burro was taken from the ranch and then suddenly, in the middle of nowhere, having two. His description of the sunrise bathing the face of the eastern cliffs shows his lack of knowledge of things solar. His knowledge of Utah geography is minimal at best. In today’s climate of inclusion and diversity his irrational and misplaced hatred toward “Mormons” is very objectionable.
I would not recommend this book to anyone.
