Ben Ide spends his time chasing wild horses in Northern California, accompanied by the wanderer, Nevada and his Indian companion, Modoc. Rather than catching horses, rumours circulate that he is a cattle rustler. But Ina Blaine, his childhood sweetheart, doesn't believe the rumours. She defends Ben against the suspicions of her newly-rich father and his unscrupulous associate, Les Setter, who has a previous connection to Nevada.
Looking toward the future, Ben Ide and his companions buy out a couple of ranchers in a severe drought and proceed to catch a lot of wild horses. He is after one in particular- California Red, whom Ina's father has promised as a present for her, if any man should catch him. Setter and Blaine set out to steal Ben's new land while he's off, and trouble follows.
Zane Grey writes from personal knowledge of northern California where he identifies Mt. Shasta, Tule Lake, and the landscape in and around Lava Beds National Monument. The "Forlorn River" represents the Lost River that flows through the Tule Lake area.
Although "Forlorn River" was first published in 1927, it was adapted to two motion pictures, one in 1926 starring Jack Holt and another in 1937 starring Buster Crabbe. It was also made a feature Dell comic in 1952. "Nevada", the sequel to "Forlorn River" is also available for download here at fadedpage.com.
