Introduction

These novels are the books that made Zane Grey the most popular author of his time. Based upon his travels and experiences in the American West, Grey wrote novels that captured the fancy of Americans everywhere and brought the American West to the entire world. The Heritage of the Desert was the book that vaulted Grey to prominence and began a prolific career involving writing, adventuring, and movie making.

A Note on First Editions

There have been a few minor corrections made to this page relating to the method of determining first editions. Mr. Ed Myers of Country Lane Books graciously pointed these out to us. Please forgive us for any confusion this might have caused.

Mr. Myers is one of the country's foremost experts on determining Zane Grey first editions and for your benefit, you can purchase a copy of "A Bibliographical Check List of the Writings of Zane Grey" from him directly. Click here for contact information.

Mr. Lloyd Rogers also published Zane Grey First Editions, a good source of information for collectors of First Editions..
