Pioneer brothers Jim and Joe Downs experience love and loss in the newly-settled Ohio Valley. Although each has his own reasons for settling in the west—one led by his ministry, the other searching for adventure—they are united in their desire to make new lives for themselves. But when Jim and Joe are caught up in the local Indian war, each must confront what he would do to save the life of his brother.
The second novel in Zane Grey’s Ohio River Trilogy, Spirit of the Border is loosely based on the lives of Grey’s ancestors, who were among the first settlers on the Ohio frontier. Spirit of the Border is preceded by Betty Zane, and is followed by The Last Trail.

American author (Pearl Zane Grey) is best known as a pioneer of the Western literary genre, which idealized the Western frontier and the men and women who settled the region. Following in his father’s footsteps, Grey studied dentistry while on a baseball scholarship to the University of Pennsylvania. Grey’s athletic talent led to a short career in the American minor league before he established his dentistry practice. As an outlet to the tedium of dentistry, Grey turned to writing, and finally abandoned his dental practice to write full time. Over the course of his career Grey penned more than ninety books, including the best-selling Riders of the Purple Sage. Many of Grey’s novels were adapted for film and television. He died in 1939.
