Grey, Zane (1922) To the Last Man




To the Last Man is a Western, a romance, and an historical novel. This Zane Grey story is based on the true story of the Arizona feud known as the Pleasant Valley War. Grey made several extended trips to the area, posing as hunter and horseman to learn the facts of what happened there. From Grey's 1921 foreword:

There really was a terrible and bloody feud, perhaps the most deadly and least known in all the annals of the West. I saw the ground, the cabins, the graves, all so darkly suggestive of what must have happened.... I never learned the truth of the cause of the Pleasant Valley War, or if I did hear it I had no means of recognizing it.... Many descendants of those killed are living there now. But no one likes to talk about it.... Suffice it to say that this romance is true to my conception of the war, and I base it upon the setting I learned to know and love so well, upon the strange passions of primitive people, and upon my instinctive reaction to the facts and rumors that I gathered.
