"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.

Der Mann liegt mitten auf der Straße, mit dem Gesicht im Staub. Jean Isbel weiß, dass er nicht der erste war und dass er nicht der letzte sein wird in diesem blutigen Krieg, der zwischen Ranchern und Schafzüchtern tobt. Doch hinter all dem steckt weitaus mehr als nur der Kampf um gutes Weideland: Im Pleasant Valley suchen zwei Familien, die eine uralte Fehde zu unversöhnlichen Feinden gemacht hat, eine Entscheidung auf Leben und Tod. Auf der einen Seite steht Gass Isbel mit seinen Söhnen, auf der anderen Colonel Lee Jorth mit seinen verwegenen Männern. Für beide... gibt es kein Zurück mehr. Aber noch schlimmer sind die zweibeinigen Wölfe, die zwischen ihnen stehen... Zane Grey ist einer der bedeutendsten Klassiker unter den Autoren des amerikanischen Western: Sein Roman Bis zum letzten Mann gilt überdies als eines der großen tragischen Werke dieses Genres. Der Apex-Verlag präsentiert diesen Roman in seiner Reihe APEX WESTERN als durchgesehene Neu-Ausgabe, ergänzt um ein Essay von Dr. Karl Jürgen Roth.

In neun neuen Geschichten erzählt Annie Proulx von den Mythen und Menschen Wyomings – lakonischer, böser und witziger denn je Wyoming, dieser am dünnsten besiedelte aller nordamerikanischen Staaten, ist Annie Proulx’ Revier. Und sie schreibt über diese unwirtliche, bizarr-schöne Gegend wie niemand sonst, voller Sympathie und Ironie. Erinnerungen eines alten Mannes an seine Zeit als Rodeoreiter enthüllen familiäre Abgründe; eine große tragische Liebesgeschichte aus dem ausgehenden neunzehnten Jahrhundert zerreißt einem schier das Herz; bitterböse Satiren schauen dem Teufel und seinem Sekretär bei der Arbeit zu; Legenden erzählen von der Zeit, als die Indianer noch allein in den Bergen und Prärien lebten, ganz anders als heute, da Millionäre, Grundstücksmakler, moderne Hippies und sture Farmer ihr Glück im Land der Pioniere suchen.
