To the Last Man

Zane Grey

Book Overview: 

The story follows an ancient feud between two frontier families that is inflamed when one of the families takes up cattle rustling. The ranchers are led by Jean Isbel and, on the other side, Lee Jorth and his band of cattle rustlers. In the grip of a relentless code of loyalty to their own people, they fight the war of the Tonto Basin, desperately, doggedly, to the last man, neither side seeing the futility of it until it is too late. And in this volatile environment, young Jean finds himself hopelessly in love with a girl from whom he is separated by an impassable barrier. (Summary by Wikipedia)

Book Excerpt: 
. . .Then at an opportune moment he drew Jean away into the cedars out of sight.

"Son, I shore hate to make your home-comin' unhappy," he said, with evidence of agitation, "but so help me God I have to do it!"

"Dad, you called me Prodigal, an' I reckon you were right. I've shirked my duty to you. I'm ready now to make up for it," replied Jean, feelingly.

"Wal, wal, shore thats fine-spoken, my boy.... Let's set down heah an' have a long talk. First off, what did Jim Blaisdell tell you?"

Briefly Jean outlined the neighbor rancher's conversation. Then Jean recounted his experience with Colter and concluded with Blaisdell's reception of the sheepman's threat. If Jean expected to see his father rise up like a lion in his wrath he made a huge mistake. This news of Colter and his talk never struck even a spark from Gaston Isbel.

"Wal," he began, thoughtfully, "reckon there are only two points in Jim's talk I need. . . Read More

I had read this book before, a good long time ago, and, even then, I remember it being problematic in the way that literally every Hollywood western is problematic (sorry, the genre is kind of rotten to the core, I think there are things that could genuinely change that, but, eh, convince me I'm...more

Probably my favorite Zane Grey book. Kind of a Romeo and Juliet retelling, in it's own way. Except better. lol

Zane Grey takes real life feud and turns it into a romance novel. Yuck. Two stars for the beautiful descriptions of the Arizona landscape.

A western romance centered in a fictionalized account of the Pleasant Valley, Arizona wars, a real feud that occurred throughout the 1880's and into the 1890's, with all of the men, except one, dead. 35 - 50 casualties. The bloodiness of it all delayed Arizona's statehood for a generation, Congre...more

As the name implies, and in spite of the characters seeming to have more sense, the killing goes on to the last man. It is Zane Grey's interpretation of a real event.

This book is a lot like a western Romeo and Juliet but with the opposite ending. Obviously with a title like "To The Last Man" we all know that it is going to be a fight til only one man lives. Also to the last man doesn't include women.

I really enjoyed how the story kept going back and forth fro...more

I loved Louis L'Amour books thought I would give Zane Grey a whirl. Sometimes the language is a bit dated but a quick easy read

An adventure/romance set in the wilds of Arizona. A crisis builds between two feuding clans of ranchers and sheep-herders, that began years ago in Texas where the two fractious and antagonistic patriarchs grew up together. The action is non-stop as the tension increases, and the gorgeous natural...more

This is an enjoyable western romance novel. It's main motives are love and revenge, and all the way it dances on the very edge of becoming really cliched, but fortunately, writers plotting skills compensate for that, and make the reader to turn his view away from some lacking and predictable plot...more

This would for me be a 3.5 book (ah could we but give half stars). I don't rate it a 4 above as I didn't enjoy/like it as much as I have most to all of the books I rate 4 point... After all beyond that all that's left is a full 5.

The book is much more of a romance than I look for. It reminds me...more
