Lacking gun fights and horses that appear in other Zane Grey novels, this story is nonetheless just as captivating. Young wheat farmer Kurt Dorn is at odds with his father over his plan to leave the farm and enlist in the army to fight in World War One. Wheat crops are needed to feed the troops and the nation. When unscrupulous union organizers with foreign ties appear on the scene, a battle just as dramatic forces Kurt to take action that leads to life-changing decisions.
A splendid step away from the Wild West for Zane Grey, who paints just as vivid a picture in this story as in his other novels and creates a captivating story.
