Extensive changes were imposed on this thrilling and vital story that significantly altered what Zane Grey wrote. Fortunately Grey's original hand-written manuscript survived, so that now at last his story can be told with its full power and his characters presented as he intended them to be.Mark Twain once observed that the Civil War completely changed the United States, mostly for the worse. It would seem in retrospect that the end of every war has had similar consequences. Zane Grey certainly felt that way about the affects of the Great War and to show and protest these affects became an impulse behind several of the novels he wrote, of which the first was War Comes to the Big Bend.In 1917, the year in which this story opens, the growing of wheat to feed the world in the rich wheat farming areas of the state of Washington will be a vital ingredient to winning the war in Europe and in feeding the people of the world, including those in the United States.
