Betty Zane

Betty Zane

FORT HENRY, 1781.

When the beautiful but headstrong Betty Zane went to live with her brother, Col. Ebenezer Zane, at Fort Henry on the Ohio frontier, she had no way of knowing what her presence there would mean to the settlement in the days to come. Nor did she know what it would mean to the handsome young stranger who had just arrived from Virginia, determined to make Fort Henry his new home, as well.

Betty Zane, Zane Grey’s first novel, was originally published in 1903. It tells the thrilling true story of his own great-great-aunt, Elizabeth “Betty” Zane —whom history credits with helping to win the last battle of the Revolutionary War in 1782.

This story was edited with young readers in mind, but adventure lovers of all ages will enjoy this stirring tale of heroes and heroines.
