I rarely rate a book five stars, but this classic of the west earned my highest rating. Not only that, Wildfire is one of the very best books I have ever read. Zane Grey's description of this wonderful part of the country along with his character development was 'spot on'. He made it easy to transfer the written word to the mind's eye with his detailed portrayal of all aspects of the landscape, the characters and - of course - the horses. Speaking of which I certainly can relate to the indomitable spirit of Wildfire having spent a fair amount of time around both show horses and feral horses. A spirited horse would most certainly try with all its spirit and lifeblood to escape capture and domestication. In this case, even though Wildfire was caught and trained (somewhat) he never really abandoned his wild, majestic inner core. It was as though he tolerated his captors after having been hounded for hundreds of miles and was finally subdued - but never conquered - by them.
This book is really about Wildfire first and foremost, and secondly about the people, good and bad, who came in contact with him. That part of the book is almost a subplot, but is still very complete and well defined.
I highly recommend this wholesome book for any person, young or old, man or woman, boy or girl interested in how spirit manifests itself and how a feral creature can teach us all about courage and persistence.
I'm not usually much for westerns but I remember reading this when I was young and wanted to see if I still liked it. There is a lot of description in the novel, my mind can see the scene before me quite well.

There are choices we make in life and choices that make us. This book does a good job at intertwining them together. The tension builds and eases and sometimes it is difficult to put down. There is something for everyone in this book.

Lose yourself in a harsh land...
Wildfire was my first selection of the many stories by Zane Grey. His style of writing has such a fashion, it simply keeps me in the saddle for hours (and I shouldn't be). Sometimes accidentally coming across something that I might think of as minor, could be like stumbling on to a long lost valuable artist I never knew before :)

The hero, Sloan, orphaned young, became a hunter of wild horses. Once he saw the wild red stallion , Wildfire, he became his life mission. Lots of good characters and Horses!
Zane to me brings back a flood of great memories curled up in front of the wood stove, coffee and reading Zane till my heart's content or up to when he introduced cars as the cowboy had to be in love with his horse...
I did not like the book. Didn't finish it because too slow moving. Went into too much detail about trees, leaves, sky, things you can imagine with just one description not ten or more
Thoroughly enjoyed another Zane Grey novel. His great love of the West and of real men, the cowboys and their wonderful horses. His description of the canyons and the sage so well done.
Zane Grey has been around for quite sometime and this was the first of his novels that I had read as a young person. It was a wonderful story and even better descriptions. Grey's attention to detail help the reader to "see and experience" what he wants you to catch. I recommend this book as well as others that Grey has written as he writes well of human experience that will tug your heart strings.
