Rye Bread

Hello, my friend has asked me to make him a Rye Bread. It's his favorite, and he knows I can bake bread fairly well so he asked me for one. But I honestly have no idea how to make Rye bread.

Is there a simple recipe on this site I could use to make my first loaf of Rye? Or somewhere else that has a good one?

Smitten Kitchen has a really simple, really good New York Deli Rye bread if you are looking for that kind of rye. I'm scared of "real" rye but this one is easy, A.
