Riders of the Purple Sage - Hardcover

2012 was the Centennial Anniversary of Riders of the Purple Sage, Zane Grey’s most famous novel. Riders has been selected by the Library of Congress as one of the 100 most influential books in American literature. In honor of the Centennial, the Zane Grey’s West Society has created a Centennial Edition of the novel. This Centennial Edition includes the original text of Riders, exactly as published 100 years ago, but also includes several essays by some of the world’s foremost experts on Grey, including Dr. Joe Wheeler’s essay on the importance of Riders to literature, Todd Newport’s essay on Grey’s love of the outdoors, Chuck Pfeiffer and Zen Ervin’s essay on the Geography of Riders, Bob Lentz’s discussion of the movies made from the novel, and Marian Coomb’s biography of Grey. The Society attempted to recreate the external attributes of the book, including the stamping on the front cover and spine, and the inlaid image on the front cover, along with a faithful reproduction of the original dust jacket. The printing of this edition was limited to a publishing run of 300 copies and this book will treasured by collectors as a worthy addition to their collections.
