Publisher's Summary

The Desert of Wheat is a thrilling and romantic tale of sabotage in the wheat fields of the Pacific Northwest during World War I.

Young farmer Kurt Dorn is torn between going to France to fight the Germans, or staying in America to be with the woman he loves and protect his wheat crop against saboteurs who question his loyalties. He struggles to come to terms with his deepest beliefs and his place in the world.

In this passionate tale, Zane Grey, one of America's most popular and enduring authors, captures the anxieties of the young country threatened by a foreign war and poised on the brink of a century of change.

What the Critics Say

"Jim Gough is the perfect reader for this story....He dramatizes moments of romance and 'man's inhumanity to man' with his mellow style and baritone voice, which take the listener to a campfire where Westerners tell tall tales amid the beautiful Western landscape. Listeners young and old will enjoy Grey's way with words and Gough's relaxing cowboy drawl." (AudioFile)
"Readable and engrossing." (The New York Times)
