He came to the Belilounds ranch, no one knew from where; a man of middle age, gentle, kindly, but so terrible a gunfighter that they called him "Hell Bent" Wade. He played the part of fate in all their lives, and only when the inevitable tragedy came and the Mysterious Rider made the great sacrifice did they know - and out of that tragedy came the light of love.

It was sort of a Love story set as a Western, and I thought I was going to read a Western. Still, this book was enjoyable and satisfied my hankering for some of the Old West.
Would have been a five stars ...
But for the derogatory term/racial slur...because of that my complete enjoyment was marred somewhat. I enjoy a good cowboy and Wade was that plus some. Good vs evil and love triumphs...
The Mysterious Rider
As always books by Zane Grey are wonderful. Surprisingly I didn’t know about this book. I have read almost all of his books. This is a great love story between various people at the ranch. I like these old westerns because you learn about life and how it was lived in the past. I highly recommend this book. Great!
