“Betty Zane” is a 1903 historical novel by American author Zane Grey. The story revolves around Grey's great-grandmother "Betty" Zane, who was a heroine of the Revolutionary War on the American frontier. The central event of the novel is the story of how Zane single-handedly resupplied a besieged Fort Henry with gun powder from her family home, resulting in a victorious defence on the American side. Unable to find a publisher for his book, Grey published “Betty Zane” himself. This fantastic story is highly recommended for those with an interest in historical fiction and the Revolutionary War. Pearl Zane Grey (1872 – 1939) was an American writer most famous for his adventure novels of the Western genre. Other notable works by this author include: “Riders of the Purple Sage” (1912), “The Last Trail” (1906), and “The Lone Star Ranger” (1915). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction and biography of the author. This book was first published in 1911.

1782-the Ohio River settlements The land along the Ohio River is newly settled. Indomitable men and women-Col. Zane and his family, the McCollochs, Wetzel, the "Death Wind" Indian killer, among them-have hewn a life out of the frontier wilderness, building homesteads and farms around the stockade and blockhouse of Fort Henry. All about them is the seemingly impenetrable forest, haunt of white renegades and hostile Indian tribes-the Wyandots, Shawnees and Delawares. Soon the Americans will face new dangers. The British oppose the birth of an emergent nation and will stop at nothing-including harnessing the savagery of their Indian allies-to destroy it. This is a story of the deep woods, of abduction, escape and rescue, of the torture stake, of single combat, siege and bloody battle. The Ohio River Trilogy-a monumental chronicle of colonial pioneers in the spirit of Drums Along the Mohawk and The Last of the Mohicans. Volume 2 The Spirit of the Border and volume 3 The Last Trail are available in Leonaur editions now!

"Betty Zane" is a historical novel about Elizabeth "Betty" Zane McLaughlin Clark (1765-1823), a heroine of the Revolutionary War on the American frontier. The author Zane Grey is her great-grandnephew. "Spirit of the Border" is a historical novel based on events occurring in the Ohio River Valley in the late eighteenth century. It features the exploits of Lewis Wetzel, a historical personage who had dedicated his life to the destruction of Native Americans and to the protection of nascent white settlements in that region. The story deals with the attempt by Moravian Church missionaries to Christianize Indians and how two brothers' lives take different paths upon their arrival on the border. A highly romanticized account, the novel is the second in a trilogy, the first of which is Betty Zane, Grey's first published work, and "The Last Trail", which focuses on the life of Jonathan Zane, Grey's ancestor. Zane Grey (1872-1939) 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. With his veracity and emotional intensity, he connected with millions of readers worldwide, during peacetime and war, and inspired many Western writers who followed him. Grey was a major force in shaping the myths of the Old West; his books and stories were adapted into other media, such as film and TV productions. He was the author of more than 90 books, some published posthumously and/or based on serials originally published in magazines.
