Book Review of
Riders of the Purple Sage
The book is widely regarded as the most popular western of all time. The story revolves around Jane Withersteen’s struggle against a Mormon fundamentalist church. Withersteen’s friend Lassiter, a famous gunslinger and Mormon hunter, helps her in the struggle.
I liked the plot of this book, but I was kind of disappointed in the ending. There was a lot about Mormonism and beliefs which helped add action to the story plot, but was a bit odd at points. I liked the main characters and the plot, but I believe it was not the best written western.
