About Book

From AudioFile
Jim Gough is the perfect reader for this story of a young Washington wheat farmer, torn between love and the urge to defend America against Germany in WWI. Gough's precise but casual performance emphasizes Grey's message, the permanence of the earth, stars, and the annual wheat crop, the impermanence of material things. 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. S.C.A. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine

Book Description
1924. From the master of the western comes a novel full of romance and adventure. The novel begins: Late in June the vast northwestern desert of wheat began to take on a tinge of gold, lending an austere beauty to that endless, rolling, smooth world of treeless hills, where miles of fallow ground and miles of waving grain sloped up to the far-separated homes of the heroic men who had conquered over sage and sand.
