Zane Grey documentary

  1. Very good documentary on a more influential author than many know. This channel has steadily evolved. Now there's an well done intro, which reminds me of many memories 2014-2016

  2. Zane Grey may have been a great writer, but he was morally bankrupt, as a husband and as a man. Disgusting self absorbed, and pathetic character. One that no one should emulate.

  3. That was my favorite doc on your channel so far and I love them all. Awesome start to my day, so many tips and strategies I took notes. Thank you again for your wonderful channel and content. I gotta get me a new summer hat now!♥

  4. Seems like he was a bit of an asshole. The shooting of the porpoise was enough for me. I'll see if there's anything else interesting on your channel as it was well done.

  5. Zane Grey is very underrated. People dismiss his work as old cowboy books, but his work is great. Pick up one of his novels, and then compare it to a current bestselling thriller. You'll see how far we've fallen as a culture.
