Meet the Author


Zane Grey (1872-1939) was a prolific and highly influential American writer best known for moralistic adventure stories set in an idealized Old West, many of which were eagerly adapted by Hollywood for the big screen. He wrote to blow off steam after a long day at his New York City dental practice. His most famous novel is Riders of the Purple Sage (1912).

    Good, but not great.

    This was a good read that held my attention, although it did certainly drag in places. Although I have not read a lot of Zane Grey, this was not the western genre that I usually associate with this author.

    Why it's free

    This edition of "Desert of Wheat" is free, but i will be deleting it as soon as i finish this review and i'll begin searching for a better copy. The editing is so poor and typos so prevalent as to render this book unreadable.

    Anna

    An excellent novel written by an exceptionally talented aithor. It was a shame that they could not find someone just a little more capable of transcribing the novel from a standard "paper" page book into the e-book style. There were many instances when I had to guess at the word or even sentences. I almost gave up about a third of the way through, but I am glad I stuck it out to the end. The work of Mr. Gray was worth the effort!
