A wheat farmer is torn between allegiances while fighting to keep the woman he loves in this epic of the First World War!

It's 1917, and the United States is about to enter the First World War. The wheat farms of rural Washington State have become an important resource in winning the war. Kurt Dorn is a wheat farmer born of a German father and an American mother, and his family's farm contains some of the finest wheat grown anywhere. But a Bolshevik band, calling itself the Industrial Workers of the World, led by a spy financed by imperial Germany, and, secretly, by a German wheat magnate, seeks to stop Dorn's wheat from getting in Allied hands.

Meanwhile, Dorn has fallen in love with Lenore Anderson, the daughter of a wealthy farmer who wants Dorn to supervise his empire and prevent the destructive IWW from ruining everything. But Dorn loses the battle to keep his farm, and instead of fighting from the home front, decides to take up arms and enlist in the US Army. Dorn will now be forced to choose between his patriotism, his love for Lenore, and his desire for revenge in a tale that spans continents and delivers a sobering message of the horrors of war.

Heavily edited upon its original publication in 1918, this edition of War Comes to the Big Bend has been restored from Grey's original handwritten manuscript, and showcases the full vision of a master storyteller.
