This is my first Zane Grey book. I assumed the Native American cultures and dress described in the book are based on historical fact and not imagination; I found that interesting. The suffering and scarifies made by the "pioneers" and the "caravan" drivers makes one realize how easy American have it today. These are the people people referred to today as having "White Privilege." They had the privilege to risk self and family to find the "American Dream." Not one gave it to them.
This is the best Zane Grey book I have read. It has held my attention from day one and tells about a part of the old west I never gave much thought to: the freight caravan. Clint Belmet is a twelve year old that leaves Illinois with his family to go west. But at Independence, Missouri his father decides that he will accept a job driving a freight wagon on the trip to help finance his way out west. Unfortunately, Indian raids take the life of both parents and the trailmaster his father chooses to look after him as he grows up. And grow up Clint does on the trail as he becomes famous as a young hunter and wagon driver who earns the nickname "Buff" after killing a bull buffalo on his first official hunt. He becomes an friend of Kit Carson who helps spread Clint's fame. Then there's little May Bell, his first love that he loses track of and must spend the next 15 years trying to locate as he works across the west.
This is a very interesting story that revolves a lot over two families who are part of a wagon train driving freight wagons and their covered wagons. Many different things happen to them that moves this story along as they cross the United States from Independence, Missouri westward to Fort Larned, Kansas, They continue with an Army caravan to Santa Fe, New Mexico. This book is an easy read. This book to me doesn't have some of the long descriptive text of the scenery as other Zane Gray books.

I enjoyed getting into an oater frame of mind and I enjoyed Zane Gray's use of language - which gave me a feel for the western frontier in the 1800's. I also learned a lot about the role "freighters" had in settling the west. And I appreciated that there was a somewhat balanced view in terms of the "white man" not keeping his word. This story was replete with old-fashioned values - and that was also refreshing.
The book begins in such a way that it seemed more a documentary on settling the South Western USA and the freighters that moved the goods and supplies across the plains. The book became more of a personal story about the main characters half way through. I found it hard to put down by that time. It may start a little slow, but sure liked the ending.
The story was very enjoyable. I thought it would have been even better though if Clint and May had spent more time together. Of course, the primary theme of the story was the one of the western caravans and the dangers they encountered. As usual Zane Grey does a marvelous job of keeping the reader engaged and turning pages.

I go to westerns every so often, from fantasy, Sci-Fi and thrillers/mysteries. Zane Gaey is always good. All his books are romances with mystery, action, and great stories of the western countries: Arizona, Wyoming, etc. This is one of the good ones.
I enjoyed the history and the excitement as well as the culture of our country in the 1850-1870's I loved the romance of the main characters and the men who helped form him. I understood the trials and disappointments they went through to finally be together.
