Zane Grey (1872-1939) was a popular American author, best known for his adventure novels and short stories. The topics of the American West and the Frontier were central to his writings, and Grey became totally engrossed within the Western genre. Many of his novels were written from the perspective and experience gained from his hunting and travelling trips all around the West. Some of Grey’s most famous novels include 'Riders of the Purple Sage', 'The Last Trail' and 'Valley of Wild Horses'. His novels and stories were adapted to more than 100 movie and television productions with the most well-known being the movie 'Riders of the Purple Sage' (1996) starring Ed Harris, Amy Madigan and Henry Thomas.
