"No, Jane, I'm not one to quit when the game grows hot, no more than you. This game, though, is new to me, an' I don't know the moves yet, else I wouldn't have stepped in front of that bullet." From Riders of the Purple Sage by Zane Grey
Such are the lines of Lassiter, the mysterious rider shaded by a black sombrero who rides in and aids Jane Withersteen when she is beset by men who intend to take her ranch. As a wealthy heiress, Jane has yet to marry, which leaves her exposed to her fellow Mormons who are incensed by her growing relationship with the Gentile Bern Venters. Her charitable kindliness toward the Gentiles in the area also makes her unpopular with the Mormon churchmen who rule the region. Venters flees into the Wilderness and Jane turns to Lassiter for help as her Mormon riders abandon their jobs and leave her herds exposed to rustlers. Lassiter is on a mission of his own as he seeks to avenge a woman who once lived with Jane. Knowing that Lassiter is already a notorious killer of Mormons, Jane uses all her female wiles to keep him from harming her fellow Mormons even as they gather to seize her ranch.
Riders of the Purple Sage is a gripping narrative of a woman whose community turns against her and forces her to look to outsiders for assistance.
