Publisher's Summary

To the Last Man is Zane Grey's archetypal tale of a bitter feud between two unforgiving factions: the ranchers led by Jean Isbel and, on the other side, Lee Jorth and his band of cattle rustlers. In the grip of a relentless code of loyalty to their own people, they fight the war of the Tonto Basin, desperately, doggedly, to the last man, neither side seeing the futility of it until it is too late. And in this volatile environment, young Jean finds himself hopelessly in love with a girl from whom he is apparently separated by an impassable barrier. How he battles to overcome the difficult situation makes a dramatic conclusion to this desperate feud.

Romeo and Juliette In the Old West

The Isbell family and the Jorth family have a feud stemming from a love triangle. When the big showdown finally comes the patriarch of the Isbell's calls his son from Texas to come to Arizona to help with the fight. On his way to answer his father's call, Jean Isbell unwittingly meets and falls in love with Ellen Jorth. Family loyalties are tested, secrets and lies come to light, gun stingers, ambush, murder and betrayal, plot twists abound. It's a great story with tons of action, adventure and drama.
Jim Gough, the narrator, has the perfect voice to bring this tale and all its characters to life. His Texas accent is exactly right. You can hear how much fun he's having and how much he loves this genre. I'm looking forward to listening to him read again soon.
I highly recommend this American classic western.

Enjoyable story to listen to

Classic western story. A little to much needles dialogue that makes the story boring at times. Overall it’s a good book.

sad cheap romance novel sprinkled with action

this story is way overdone with unnecessary details that added nothing to the story, and repeated that throughout, and this author has an odd fascination with the word "ejaculated" when many other words with less ambiguity attached to them could have been used, it kept throwing me out of the story

Uhmm

I enjoyed the reading and the feelings it gave. However it wasn’t as poetic as Riders of the Purple Sage. Guess I compare all of Zane’s work to that.
I do recommend this

Great performance!

I really enjoy Jim Gough reading. He does run sentences together and ignores punctuation but it makes me think about the words! I love when he adds a little comment or corrects himself now and then. He is sure the best at reading western stories.

The Pleasant Valley War!

Jean Isbel was a young man living peacefully in Oregon when he received a letter from his father asking him to come home. His father was a cattle rancher in Grass Valley, a beautiful valley in the foothills of Arizona’s Tonto Basin. Sheep ranchers were encroaching into the valleys, from Black Butte to the Apache country, and there was going to be trouble. His father had been losing cattle lately as well. Jean packed up, got his animals and supplies, and headed off for home. Being unfamiliar with the country, Jean stopped at a camp to ask for directions. Here he met Ellen Jorth and had an amicable conversation with benefits, agreeing to meet here again in two days. Sure enough, Ellen was the daughter of a sheep rancher. You know this is going to be a problem. Jean made it home to a relieved and happy father. The story continues with what amounted to war between the opposing ranchers. Gunfighters and gangs were hired and the body count rose. It’s an interesting tale with the forbidden romance between Jean and Ellen taking the major focus. I would have expected even more action considering the authenticity of the story. Three.point.five.

Mills and Boon eat your heart out

Majority of this book is romantic twaddle that would not be out of place in a Mills and Boon.
However, the western novel which is obscured by the romance is really gripping and the description of places, in particular, is wonderful.
