This is another one of Zane Grey's classics. You could particularly enjoy his description of a journey across the painted desert. He develops each main character in the story in a way that captures your' full attention and makes it hard for you put the book down. This book is in the public domain. It is a great read!

《沙漠遗产》是赞恩·格雷的又一经典作品。主人公约翰·哈雷在沙漠中奄奄一息,最终被善良的农场工人奥古斯特发现而获救,并在奥古斯特的照顾下恢复了健康。与此同时,约翰发现自己无可救药地爱上了奥古斯特的养女麦思卡尔,但麦思卡尔已有心上人。整个故事以蛮荒的西部为背景,将探险与一系列阴谋诡计交织在一起,带给读者非同一般的阅读体验。

In The Heritage of the Desert, 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.

赞恩·格雷(1872年1月-1939年10月),美国小说家,他一生写了60多部关于西部边疆骑士故事的情景剧,其中最著名的是《紫艾草骑士》。并且,他的不少作品被改编成电影、电视而再度风靡。

Zane Grey (January 31, 1872 – October 23, 1939) was an American author best known for his popular adventure novels and stories that were a basis for the Western genre in literature and the arts; he idealized the American frontier. Riders of the Purple Sage (1912) was his best-selling book. In addition to the commercial success of his printed works, they had second lives and continuing influence when adapted as films and television productions.

"But the man's almost dead."

The words stung John Hare's fainting spirit into life. He opened his eyes. The desert still stretched before him, the appalling thing that had overpowered him with its deceiving purple distance. Near by stood a sombre group of men.
