Riders of the purple sage by Zane Grey( Book )

18 editions published between 1912 and 2005 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Riders of the Purple Sage, perhaps more than any other novel, contributed to the concept of the American West. If Owen Wister invented the Western story in The Virginian, Grey moved it farther west in the popular imagination and supplied authentic atmosphere. Riders of the Purple Sage is "pure Americana", to quote one critic. It has the classic elements of the genre: revenge, fast horses, abduction, pistol duels, cattle stampedes, daring pursuits and escapes, dark secrets, hidden gold, pastoral refuge, splendid sunsets - and Grey's emphasis on the passion of man and woman. This Authorized Edition carries a foreword by Loren Grey, the son of Zane Grey and a well-known psychologist. The introduction is by James C. Work, a professor of English at Coloradao State University

When he takes the painting home, the Lone Wolf discovers that he has spent 20,000 guineas on a forgery--and regrets it not one bit. It is his excuse to meet the princess.
