This is the thrilling firsthand account of a hunting trip that Grey took with Jones. It is a tale that takes the listener on a real hunting trip - with constant threats of danger from wild beasts, Indians, and the many pitfalls of a wild country untouched by civilization.

Outstanding true story.
What did you love best about The Last of the Plainsmen?
A wonderful true account of a trip made by Zane Grey and one of the last of the pioneer plainsmen, Buffalo Jones. He was a famous hunter and sportsmen at the turn of the 20th century. Toward the end of his career, Jones decided not to hunt and kill wild animals but to capture and try to preserve incredible animals like the Buffalo that, even back then, were staring to die out. The book relates the trip they made to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon to try and track and capture mountain lions and Jones' attempts to preserve the last of the buffalo from extinction.
What did you like best about this story?
Zane Grey's wonderful prose and narrative skills make these adventures comes to life.
What about Jim Roberts’s performance did you like?
Does a very good job with the narration.
Who was the most memorable character of The Last of the Plainsmen and why?
Buffalo Jones..bigger than life character.
Any additional comments?
For those who are used to Zane Grey as an old West writer with lots of cowboys and gunfights, this will be quite a change but is is a wonderful story in it's own right.
