Zane Grey, with his popular adventure novels, has helped craft our image of the American frontier as much as anyone. But it is this performance of Grey's Desert Heritage, by award-winning narrator B. J. Harrison, that really brings the wild west to life. With an incredible commitment to the whole cast of characters, Harrison takes listeners from the desert, where rancher August Naab comes upon a dying John Hare, to the Naab's ranch where the temptation of love and land ignite a slew of adventures.
“They say I fell among thieves….I’ve fallen among saints as well.” John Hare lies dying in the desert until he is discovered and saved by the kind and generous rancher, August Naab. As Hare is nursed back to health on Naab’s ranch, he finds himself irresistibly attracted to Naab’s adopted daughter, Mescal. But Mescal is being relentlessly pursued by Holderness, a man who is not to be trusted. Hare is soon drawn into a web of adventure and intrigue over land, water, and the heart of a beautiful woman, all set against the sweeping backdrop of the Wild West.
