About this Item

Hardcover. 280 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.8in.Author of more than sixty popular, highly-influential Western novels, Zane Grey was born Pearl Zane Gray. Although no one knows for certain, it seems likely that Grey thought that Pearl was too feminine a name for an author of Western adventure. Zane was Greys family name, and he was intensely proud of his Western pioneer heritage. His first-published book, Betty Zane (1803), was inspired by the true story of Revolutionary War frontier heroism in his family. Greys early books about his own family were not commercially successful. Beginning with his first Western novel, The Heritage of the Desert, Zane Grey launched upon one of the most influential writing careers in American history. The Desert of Wheat was first published in 1919. It tells the story of Kurt Dorn, a young American wheat farmer who is torn between saving his farm and defending the woman he loves, and defending America during the First World War. Kurt does eventually choose to go to war, where he realizes how futile and destructive warfare is. With a lyrical ending, The Desert of War is different from Greys Western novels, but equally satisfying to readers. The Desert of Wheat was made into a film called Riders of the Dawn in 1920. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781603128537

About this title

Synopsis:

With a lyrical ending, The Desert of War is different from Grey's Western novels, but equally satisfying to readers. The Desert of Wheat was made into a film called Riders of the Dawn in 1920.

From the Back Cover:

Zane Grey is one of America's most popular and enduring authors, the man behind the classic Western Riders of the Purple Sage.

The Desert of Wheat is a thrilling and romantic tale of sabotage in the wheat fields of the Pacific Northwest during World War I. A passionate novel of patriotic and anti-union propaganda, it portrays the anxieties of the young country threatened by a foreign war after the closing of the frontier. Grey captures the heart of a nation at the brink of a century of change.
