Publisher's Summary

"Somewhere northward in the broken fastnesses lay hidden a valley walled in from the world. Would they be there, those lost fugitives whose story had thrilled him? After twelve years would she be alive, a child grown to womanhood in the solitude of a beautiful canyon? Incredible! Yet he believed his friend's story and he indeed knew how strange and tragic life was. He fancied he heard her voice on the sweeping wind. She called to him, haunted him. He admitted the improbability of her existence, but lost nothing of the persistent intangible hope that drove him." A beautiful rainbow filled with mystery and promise prompts John Shefford's singular journey beyond the Utah upland into a wild canyon laden with a haunting secret. But to reach it, Shefford has to go through a Mormon village, where trespassing means death, and confront a treacherous outlaw who blocks the way.


Audible Editor Reviews

The sequel to Zane Grey’s wildly popular Riders of the Purple Sage, this frontier story picks up where its predecessor left off, offering a pointed discussion of polygamy and women’s roles within the Mormon community. Nevertheless, The Rainbow Trail remains, at its heart, a larger-than-life Western romance, featuring courageous cowboys, action-packed gun fights, and daring jail breaks. From Star Wars to The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, performer Michael Prichard has voiced thousands of characters over the course of his career, and his knack for roleplaying is evident here as he trots out his downhome Western drawl, breathing life into this colorful cast of wranglers, outlaws, and early settlers of the Wild West.
