Zane Grey literary manuscript for The Water Hole
Scope and Contents
Grey turned “The Water Hole” into a serial publication (Collier's, 1927) and published in novel form. It was then made into a movie the following year (a silent film, directed by R. Richard Jons) and released in the United States on August 25, 1928. In 1954 the novel was published in book form, with the title changed to “Lost Pueblo.” It was reprinted again in 1965.
