Home Zane Grey The Last of the Plainsmen. Buffalo Jones needs no introduction to American sportsmen, but to theseof my readers who are unacquainted with him a few words may not beamiss. He was born sixty-two years ago on the Illinois prairie, and he hasdevoted practically all of his life to the pursuit of wild animals. Ithas been a pursuit which owed its unflagging energy and indomitablepurpose to a singular passion, almost an obsession, to capture alive,not to kill. He has caught and broken the will of every well-known wildbeast native to western North America. Killing was repulsive to him.

Last of the Duanes is a 1914 novel by Zane Grey. Last of the Duanes is the original version of The Lone Star Ranger. Originally written in 1913, it was rejected by Munsey's Magazine as too violent.

Grey combined the two serials into his 1915 novel The Lone Star Ranger, the first of his works to top a best-seller list

This is a good read, I am a big fan of Louis Lamour and it is hard to read anybody else and not draw comparisons in style. Zane Grey would be my 2nd favorite western Author my critique of him is in this book he elaborated to much in sitituation description.

I am glad to finally read the book as it was written. When I read "Long Star Ranger" I always felt that something was wrong or missing. Jenny was forgotten and the new romantic interest just didn't seem like someone Buck would fall in love with. I really enjoyed this original version.

I write this review from the Mogollon Rim-Arizona! All things the same- only 105 years later!

I'm not a regular reader of western novels, but the title of this one intrigued me. My first name is Duane, and I had never heard of Duane as a surname. I recall that my late father enjoyed reading western novels, and he had mentioned Zane Grey as one of his favorite authors. I wonder if that may have influenced my naming? Since my parents are long deceased, I will probably never know.
I enjoyed the read, and I find it hard to understand why a publisher of popular novels would have rejected it initially. I will give it four stars, just based on the enjoyment of reading it.

If your looking at The Lone Star Ranger.... Don't. The Last of the Duanes is the novel Zane wanted to publish and it shows in true Zane fashion. Hands down he is the best western writer of his time (this one too)! Never read a book that I didn't love... Until the Lone Star Ranger. The Ranger was a hatchet job bc of the publishers. It's compiled of the first part of the Last of the Duanes but the second half is completely botched. Don't waste your time. Loved this book... Have read and reread. Enjoy!
