Back cover copy

From a master storyteller of Old West adventures comes this novel of romance and redemption. Zane Grey, author of "Riders of the Purple Sage, " introduces Hell-Bent Wade, a gunfighter with a shadowy past. Wade arrives at a Colorado homestead where a young woman is being pressured into matrimony. Rancher Bill believes that marriage to Columbine, his foster daughter, will steady his wild and unruly son, Jack. Columbine is torn between her feelings of duty and affection for the old man, who raised her as his own child, and her blossoming love for a young ranch hand, Wilson Moore. Columbine's dilemma seems impossible to resolve--until tragedy, fate, and the mysterious rider intervene. Readers with a taste for classic Westerns will appreciate this story's spirited, well-drawn characters and its evocative descriptions of the frontier's natural beauty.
