Summary
"In 1917, the year in which this story opens, the growing of wheat in the rich farming areas of the state of Washington becomes a vital ingredient in winning the war in Europe and feeding the people of the world. Kurt Dorn is a wheat farmer born of a German father and American mother. The Dorn farm contains some of the finest wheat grown anywhere, but there are forces that would like to prevent wheat being harvested in the area: 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. Dorn falls 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. Dorn, however, has something else in mind after he is drafted by the U.S. Army."--Dustjacket flap
