Imagine if Romeo and Juliet were set among the sheep ranching families of Arizona. Add in a heavy dash of frontier action and adventure, and that neatly sums up the plot of Zane Grey's To the Last Man, which follows a blossoming romance among members of feuding clans in the vast open plains of the Wild West.

10) Betty Zane
The historical novel Betty Zane was famed Western writer Zane Grey's first published book. The plucky protagonist was an ancestor of Zane Grey who fought ferociously during the Revolutionary War, serving as a key go-between during several battles against the British and their Native American allies.
Though Zane Grey is best remembered as a writer of Westerns, the prolific novelist also tackled social issues in a series of books chronicling World War I. In The Day of the Beast, protagonist Daren Lane returns to the United States after years on the battlefield, only to find that the mood of the country has shifted. This historical novel is as relevant today as it was when it was first published in 1922.
Although Western writer Zane Grey is best remembered for The Riders of the Purple Sage, the novel The U.P. Trail is a favorite among critics and fans alike. This ambitious tale weaves a grand narrative of the construction of the Union Pacific Railroad line, which serves as the backdrop for a tender romance that blooms between the virtuous Allie and the mysterious and taciturn protagonist, Warren Neale.
Two brothers choose different paths in the Ohio wilderness in this epic, classic Western inspired by history and written by an American icon.
