Because of the unrestrained slaughter of cougars on Buckskin Mountain, the deer population has increased so fast that they begin to starve. But when Thad Eburne, chief forest ranger, hears the government’s plan to open a massive deer hunt to hundreds of indiscriminate hunters, he worries that it will only worsen man’s dangerous meddling with nature. Then, when Eburne decides to save a deer herd from a cattleman bent on selling illegal deer meat for easy money, he finds himself up against the deadliest outlaw in the West. In The Deer Stalker, listeners will find all they have come to expect from the great Western author Zane Grey—swift action, magnificent descriptions of the desert and canyon country, plus the added valiant effort of a ranger’s struggle to save the doomed herd of deer on the Buckskin range. Grey makes the listener see this colorful Arizona country, feel something of the awe that is the inevitable reaction of man to the majesty of one of nature’s miracles, smell the tang of mingled pine and sagebrush, and thrill to the heroic struggle of a few dedicated men as they battle to undo the harm of the willful and greedy.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A great writer, rich in invention, prodigal with his action, juicily romantic.” New Yorker
“This tells of Ranger Thad Eburne, forest conservationist, and his attempt to protect a herd of 50,000 deer doomed to death. It also tells of Eburne’s love for Patricia, a moneyed, rootless eastern girl who feels that the west will purify her past and start her on a new life.” 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.
