10/23/1939  Zane Grey's West                                                     
On this day in 1939, Zane Grey died. Fifty-six of his eighty-nine books are       
westerns; many of them are not just shoot-em-ups but, as here in The U.P. Trail, 
observe and lament the "many shining bands of steel across the plains and         
mountains, many stations and hamlets and cities, a growing and marvelous         
prosperity from timber, mines, farms, and in the distant end -- a gutted West."
