Zane Grey is at his best in this story of the building of the Boulder Dam, later renamed the Hoover Dam. Straddling the great Colorado River, a huge structure is slowly rising—a dam that will alter the course of this ravaging river and harness its awesome power. Men from all over America have flocked to the site, laboring at the dam by day and filling the nearby Las Vegas gambling houses by night. To Lynn Weston, a rich man’s son, working on the dam means independence and the chance to prove his courage. But an even greater challenge faces Lynn: he discovers a girl who has escaped her abductors in the back seat of his car and becomes her self-appointed protector. Suddenly, he finds himself threatened by a pack of ruthless gangsters with a vicious plan to blow up the dam.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

"[Bolder Dam], the spectacular vision which became a reality in the early ’30’s and which inspired Lynn Weston, a rich man’s son, to ‘earn a living in overalls.’ All the on-the-job dangers are doubled by a gangster gang who want to sabotage the project and also engage in white slavery.” Kirkus Reviews

Author Bio: Zane Grey

Zane Grey® (1872–1939), born in Ohio, was practicing dentistry in New York when he and his wife published his first novel. Grey presented the West as a moral battleground in which his characters are destroyed because of their inability to change or are redeemed through a final confrontation with their past. The man whose name is synonymous with Westerns made his first trip west in 1907 at age thirty-five. More than 130 films have been based on his work.
