Zane Grey's West Society - News - Chuck Pfeiffer's New Book
by Terry Bolinger, ZGWS
Zane Grey: A Study in Values - Above and Beyond the West
Over the years, there have been several books published dealing with the life story of Zane Grey. This book, authored by Dr. Chuck Pfeiffer, a member of the Zane Grey's West Society, and one of the world's leading authorities on Zane Grey, and published by the Zane Grey's West Society, with a foreword by Grey's youngest son, Dr. Loren Grey, is destined to become one of the seminal works on this author.
The book is painstakingly and meticulously researched. Dr. Pfeiffer has visited many of the actual sites that the novels were based on. He has spent hours in the field reaching these sites, interviewing locals with recollections and memories of Grey's travel in the area, has re-read the frontier romances in order to draw details, and has had access to many of Grey's handwritten diaries.
This book is the culmination of years of research and effort and deserves to be identified as the most comprehensive treatment of the author to date.
