Zane Grey was born in Zanesville, Ohio, in 1872, into a family of ten children whose father was a dentist. The family was very strict and his father instilled in him a rigid moral upbringing.

Gray attended high school in Zanesville and later studied dentistry at the University of Pennsylvania, where he eventually graduated and began working with his father.

However, he did not like dentistry, so he abandoned the job and devoted himself entirely to literature.

After an expedition to Arizona in 1907 with a friend to hunt cougars, Zane Grey became fascinated by the Wild West, and three years later he published his first Western novel, entitled The Heritage of the Desert.. This novel was a great success and critically acclaimed and allowed him to devote himself fully to the literature of popular novels about the life and conquest of the West.

A few years later he published another of his best works, Riders of the Purple Sage and created his own film company to produce films of his novels, which he sold shortly after to one of the founders of Paramount Pictures. This production company made dozens of films based on the stories told by Zane Grey in his novels.

He was so successful that he became a millionaire and was able to devote his life to travel and adventure, which provided him with a wealth of ideas and experiences to write his novels. He only spent a few months a year writing. He sold millions of copies of some 90 books in total that he wrote.

Zane Grey frequently went to the Rogue River (Oregon), where he bought a cabin on a mining concession.

He died in October 1939 and his remains were buried in the Union Cemetery in Lackawaxen, Pennsylvania, where there is also a museum in honor of the writer.
