A good western to read in a couple days.

After reading the book, I am convinced that someone other than Zane Grey wrote the book.

I wish the details of this book had given more detailed information about this book. But these Great Western Editions by Grosset and Dunlap are highly collectable. With a colorful and durable mylar protective cover they were often seen in public libraries during the 1950's and early sixties as that is when these were printed. There are 61 of these in total and under the dust jacket the cover of the book has the initials ZG stamped all across them. They make for a fine collection when presented on a shelf. As to the story: Before reading this book one almost HAS to read Wanderer of the Wasteland. This is in reality the conclusion of the other book, as it leaves many questions unanswered on the last page. Adam Larey, aka Wansfell the Wanderer, is here and his story is completed by the love of a woman, Ruth Virey. Helping the romance along is Merryvale, Adam's partner for the last four years of his wandering. Returning as well is Adam's brother, Guerd, and Collishaw, a fierce gunfighter and former sheriff from Texas. In Stairs of Sand, he runs a string of gambling halls, and with Guerd plans to steal the water holes along which he has learned the route of the new railroad would take. Ruth lives at Lost Lake,one of the water holes, and is abducted by Collishaw's cohorts, and eventually Adam kills Collishaw; but that does not end all of the complications Adam must face before Ruth can be his wife. Ruth had demons as well from her past which she has to face and conquer and climb. Stairs of Sand is an apt sequel; is more readable, faster paced, more action than Wanderer; a fitting conclusion to Adam Larey's story. You need to read it. I have also learned that before Wanderer of the Wasteland was published by Harper's they insisted that Zane Grey cut 50,000 words out of the 180,000 he had written, and I believe this is some of those 50,000 words. Zane Grey Inc. has been looking for ZG's holographic manuscript for many years now and has not found it, I hope they will, so Wanderer could be restored as he actually wrote it.

When Zane Grey finished writing Wander of the Wasteland he wrote in his diary: 838 pages, 170,000 words. But before Harpers would publish it he had to cut 50,000 words from it. My belief is Stairs of Sand are those 50,000 words reworked with additional material. There is no way to prove this unless those 838 pages of holographic manuscript can be found. At one time, Zane Grey, Inc was looking for those pages so an unexpurgated version of Wanderer could be printed. But with all that is going on with ZGI whether that will happen or not is up in the air; ZGI is for sale, I have recently learned. But as to Stairs of Sand, here is my opinion of it as a book: Before reading this book one almost HAS to read Wanderer of the Wasteland. This is in reality the conclusion of the other book, as Wanderer leaves many questions unanswered on the last page. Adam Larey, aka Wansfell the Wanderer, is here and his story is completed by the love of a woman, Ruth Virey. Helping the romance along is Merryvale, Adam's partner for the last four years of his wandering. Returning as well is Adam's brother, Guerd, and Collishaw, a fierce gunfighter and former sheriff from Texas.

Ruth had demons as well from her past which she has to face and conquer and climb. Stairs of Sand is an apt sequel; is more readable, faster paced, more action than Wanderer; a fitting conclusion to Adam Larey's story. You need to read it. Are these those lost pages? Perhaps this IS them....Maybe someday we will know.

From the photo it is hard to tell what G & D edition this is, and it is quite difficult to tell when it was published. But regardless, G & D editions of Zane Grey's work are collectable. They are getting scarcer and scarcer all the time. As to Stairs of Sand, Before reading this book one almost HAS to read Wanderer of the Wasteland.
