    1 thought on “The Rainbow Trail”

    1. The Rainbow Trail, a worthy sequel to "Riders of the Purple Sage".John Shefford ,a former minister,(he was told to leave by the church , for being a suspected atheist !)meets Bern and Elizabeth Venters in Illinois.They tell him an unbelievable story of Lassiter, Jane Withersteen and Fay Larkin ,their "adopted" daughter .Stuck in Surprise Valley for 12 long years!Strangely Shefford falls in love with Fay ,without ever seeing her.He needs someone to love.Arriving in Arizona, John encounters an Ind [...]

    2. After reading a few classic Westerns, I’ve figured out why the heroes have been reflective, thoughtful, intelligent characters. It’s so that the author can put in a lot of description, mostly of the land. The terrain and vegetation descriptions set this apart from other non-genre novels - Grey describes like he is there, so that you could picture the cinematic version of the story. There wasn’t as much going on in this one compared to “Riders of the Purple Sage”, and multiple bad guys [...]

    3. Lovely sequel to Grey's "Riders of the Purple Sage." Twelve years later a young, disillusioned, ex-preacher in Illinois, hears about the wonderful secret canyon where a couple with their young foster daughter had fled to for safety, knowing they could not likely get out ever again without help from outside. He is enthralled with the idea that he might find that canyon and bring the girl and her family back out into the world. He heads out West and, without any experience, journeys into the unfor [...]

    4. 3.5 stars. Better than the first, but Grey seems to spend more time on descriptions of the terrain than on a story. I will give Mr. Zane Grey a break for now.

    5. This is a sequel to the classic Riders of the Purple Sage, though the main characters from that book do not enter the plot till very near the end. Like the first book, this book is also a romance set in the west, but much of the time the characters and the plot are subordinate to the setting, and even when the characters and their actions take center stage, they have been changed through their experiences in the "crucible of the desert." Zane Grey wrote of the land through which he traveled and [...]

    6. As you all know from my earlier post, I'm reading hundred-year-old westerns because this summer's vacation crossed paths with Zane Grey's homestead in Lackawaxen, PA. His house on the Delaware River is fantastic Americana (his writing space is perfectly preserved, down to the rugs and books and custom Hopi paintings done right on the wall). His grave nearby is quiet, mixed in with resting spots of Revolutionary War fatalities (the Minisink Battleground, just down the road). The museum is free, a [...]

    7. This sequel to Riders of the Purple Sage has an even more salacious story line than the first book. In Riders, a young Mormon woman has to escape the clutches of her controlling church elders. In this book, which takes place fifteen years later, the state of Utah has outlawed plural marriages, but an entire village of beautiful young "sealed" wives (not legal wives, but plural wives sealed by God) are hidden in the mountains, and visited in the dead of night by gray-bearded elders. Yuck! The her [...]

    8. The book is not as well paced or intense as Riders of the Purple Sage. Shefford is no Lassiter. He too often gets lost in his own dream world and needs others to snap him out of it. He is more a hero by accident and by the setup by others. I was sorry that Lassiter was portrayed as old and frail. I was hoping for at least one good gunfight where he could shine. I thought Fay Larkin was portrayed well, (wished she had really done the deed). Jane Withersteen was portrayed as just a shadow of her f [...]

    9. I love Zane Grey, but this one far outshines most of his books. The descriptions of the canyons and the river and the tension of the adventures were so exciting, I couldn't wait to finish the book, and yet I hated to say good bye to the characters. This is my second reading of the story, and it was better this time! I was so happy that Lassiter and Jane got out, and so glad the Mormon religion has changed their practices of "sealed wives". Horrible. I think Zane liked the Mormons, but hated some [...]

    10. What a lovely continuation to Riders of The Purple Sage.A disgraced minister heads to the desert to find himself and a girl named Fay Larkin that in his mind will be his salvation. In that beautiful desert, he finds love, loyalty, friendship and himself.The friendship between Shefford and Nas Ta Bega alone made the story a five star read. Again, I love a good bromance.I was a little upset by how queasy Shefford was over Fay killing Waggoneer, but it all righted itself.Jane's horse still knowing [...]

    11. Once in awhile you come upon a book or books that speaks to you on a different level then all of the others and that is what "The Riders of the Purple Sage" and "The Rainbow Trail" have done to me. The descriptions of the vastness and beauty of the American West along with its history and romance told by a true artist is a combination that is hard to recover from. I will need a day or so to absorb all of this before I can let go and begin another book. Zane Grey was a true artist and a must read [...]

    12. I loved this book. I was so fascinated by the author's descriptions that our next trip was planned around this exciting landmark in Northern Arizona. We took a boat trip on Lake Powell and hiked from the landing to the site of this natural bridge. The story itself was fascinating, being the culmination years after the end of "Rider's of the Purple Sage." It had a mysterious quality to the story. I could read these two books time and again.

    13. Yesteryears reading, revived!Picturesque, soul searching, romantic, mysterious, educational, enlightening, fascinating plot that kept me reading for several hours, and hating to lay it down even when I knew I must!

    14. Sequel to "Riders of the Purple Sage", Grey clearly has issues with Mormons and presents Indians as noble, wise people. Description of the landscape is first rate. The story is melodramatic.

    15. The Rainbow Tail / The Desert Crucible • by Zane Grey(Riders . . . Book #2)John Shefford at age 24 has been removed as preacher over doctrinal disagreements with his church. Providentially he meets Bern and Bess Venters, a wealthy equestrian family of three, who relay to him a fantastic tale. 12 years ago Bess was saved from a life among outlaws, after being abducted by Mormons as a child. Still trapped in that high desert canyon is a young girl, Fay Larkin and her guardians, Jane and Lassiter [...]

    16. One of my favorite books of all time! Especially following Riders of the Purple Sage. I am now a true fan of Zane Grey. This is my third book in a row and it won't be my last Grey book.

    17. I'd like to give it 3.5 stars, but Real good "follow-up". I didn't really think I was a romance reader, but Grey's are quite different, I believe. Give them both a try if you haven't read him.

    18. I'm happy that I read "Riders of the purple safe" first. It gave the book a much deeper meaning. Love the landscape that Zane Grey is painting with his words.

    19. The Librivox reading of the Rainbow Trail brings to life the follow-on to The Riders of the Purple Sage. The story, a western full of heroes and villains, is a social commentary on polygamy and the way that it was practiced in Utah in the 1800's. A disgraced minister from New England travels to Utah to find a young girl who was raised by a reformed gunfighter and his lady friend in a valley that was unreachable after a rock fall. The valley was a place of safety for the group. The minister must [...]

    20. I picked this audiobook up at the Library for something to listen to on a long trip, not realizing that it was the sequel to Mr. Grey’s “Riders of the Purple Sage.” Apparently it had been published in a heavily censored format (because of the critical stance towards Mormons), as “The Rainbow Trail,” but this work was finally published 90 years later. I occasionally read one of Mr. Grey’s works, so I’m going to put off posting this review until I get and finish “Riders of the Purp [...]

    21. I wasn't going to pick up any more Zane Grey after Riders of the Purple Sage, but I heard this was a sequel with the "rest of the story." I think I neither liked it well enough nor hated it enough to want to analyze it in a review, but maybe I can come up with a few comments. Overall, it was anti-climatic. I found the protagonist, Shefford, exasperating, not much of a mover/shaker, stopping to gaze at the horizon and consider it in detail while the enemy is trailing him. Once that threat had pas [...]

    22. The sequel to the famous "Riders of the Purple Sage", Shefford returns to the West to find the lost Faye and rescue Jane and Lassiter, whom he thinks are sealed in a canyon ("canon" as Grey calls them) after a landslide Lassiter created to save them from Mormon bad guys.Lots of wonderful description of the beautiful country of southern Utah and northern Arizona. Shefford becomes a friend of a Navajo, who is instrumental in helping him complete his quest. Some historical framework is quite intere [...]

    23. This story (originally called The Rainbow Trail) has more psychological depth and less action than its better-known prequel, Riders of the Purple Sage. I had to consult the Web for background information on the erstwhile Mormon practice of "sealed wives," which is an institution on which the plot hinges. It is also true to say that Zane Gray's superficial depiction of Navajo culture would later be surpassed by novelist Tony Hillerman (Perhaps phrases like "Me no savvy Jesus Christ" had more reso [...]

    24. Started out ok, with some Abbey like descriptions of the desert. The story plot started out interesting as well. However, about a third of the way through this one got really stale. Descriptions of the land became repetitive, the plot unfolded in painfully predictable fashion, and the protagonist degenerated into hand wringing questioning of his potential relationship with the Sago Lily. This book was fine for the cross-country plane ride I read it on but not one I would go out and buy. If you l [...]

    25. A worthy successor to Grey's Riders of the Purple Sage. You get to find out what happened to Jane, Lassiter and little Fay, but you also get a whole new story of John Shepherd, a young man looking for his own calling and new meaning to his life, pinning his quest on a strange story he's heard. A lot of the book is really his internal journey, set against the phenomenal natural backdrop of the southwest as only Zane Grey can paint it. The dramatic "escape" journey--including a raft journey throug [...]

    26. I didn't realize until after I started reading this book that it was a continuation of sorts of Grey's book Riders of the Purple Sage. I didn't remember important bits from the first book to thoroughly enjoy this one enough. I found the book boring at times and the writing reminded me of a 1950's western. The words "pard", "squaw" seemed outdated and a bit pretentious and obviously politically incorrect on the word squaw which I know is an insult to Natives. I wished I could have enjoyed this bo [...]

    27. Good Book, you should read Riders of the Purple Sage before this one. At first I did not like Shefford, but I guess he portrays a regular person. Not the grand hero. Some funny one liners.I did think it a little weird, that he fell in love with the idea of a Fay. Mainly since when Venturs left the girl was only 5 or 6 years old. Of course she was 18 or 19 when Shefford met her, but still.I really like the description of riding the rapids. By read the Riders of the Purple Sage before hand, when J [...]

    28. Finally finished.I had a really hard time getting through this book and this is coming from someone who usually reads 19th century literature. At one point I even set it aside to read something else but, ultimately, I had to come back to it because I couldn't leave a book unfinished.The reason that reading this book was like trudging through ankle deep mud, was because absolutely NOTHING happens until the last fifty pages! And even then, any action or forward movement of the plot was overshadowe [...]

    29. A man searches for a girl whose story he has heard. In the course of the search, he finds a Mormon town which is inhabited by women. They are the second and so forth wives of men who live a short horse ride away. It chronicles when they wanted to join the US, but had to give up that part of their religious practices. The story line was a bit lame. He falls in love with someone whom he doesn't know and goes off to save her. He succeeds. I did enjoy the descriptions of the landscapes, otherwise no [...]
