RIDERS OF THE PURPLE SAGE

Note to Adobe eBook Customers: The Adobe Acrobat eBook Reader version is printable, but there is a known problem printing to printers that do not use the PostScript page description language. This problem occurs with some HP LaserJet, Epson Stylus inkjet, and Epson impact printers. Consult your printer’s documentation to find out if it is PostScript compatible. This does not affect your ability to read the book on screen. Riders of the Purple Sage celebrates the frontier experience and mourns it’s passing. As the story opens a wealthy woman rancher in Utah disobeys her church’s elders and begins to lose her stock and workers. Help arrives in the person of Lassiter, a hired gunfighter who routs the persecutors and then reveals his own motivation for taking on the Mormon establishment. Grey used characters like Lassiter to show how powerful men could be, but also how they were able to be changed by women and develop deeper ties to the community without putting their masculinity at risk. At a time when America had lost the frontier, and the country’s ethnic mix was changing, Grey offered an ideal where all could meet as equals, judged only by their willingness to work.
