Book Description:
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 Grey's 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. Grey's 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 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.
