Publisher's Summary

Hot-blooded Georgiana Stockwell will break a man's heart while he's eating out of her hand. Moving from the East to join her schoolteacher sister in the rugged wilds of Tonto Basin, Arizona, Georgiana makes quite an impression. Despite her sister's best efforts, Georgiana creates a culture clash as her modern, free-spirited personality comes up against the code of the West, the unwritten law of the range that everyone is expected to follow. Georgiana's flirtations and coquetry provoke and outrage the proud Westerners of Tonto Basin.

The young and steadfast Cal Thurman is especially taken with Georgiana. Cal is a man of the West through and through, courageous, loyal, sincere, quiet-spoken, and hardworking. Though she never expected to, Georgiana finds herself falling for this man from another world. But things are not as simple as either of them may want; Georgiana soon realizes that loving Cal means coming up against a heritage of honor and violence she couldn't have imagined. She's stirred things up too much, and the pride of the West must be satisfied before things can be settled.

First published in 1934, Code of the West is another thrilling tale by the greatest novelist of the American West. Better than any other writer, Zane Grey vividly shows the West as it truly was, defining itself through an unwritten code of honor and values, and he details the consequences when an outsider refuses to live by it.

Code of the west

An interesting tale. Not at all what I was expecting. Part love story. Part growing of age. Part tales of families in the old west. Not at all the classic white hat cowboy story. Well written. Well told. I found myself wanting to listen longer. To come back quicker.

Great story and narration.

Took me awhile to get used to the narrator, but once I did I really enjoyed it. Highly recommended.
