When complete, they will form the story of a crop of wheat from the time of its sowing as seed in California to the time of its consumption as bread in a village of Western Europe.The first novel, The Octopus, deals with the war between the wheat grower and the Railroad Trust- the second, The Pit, will be the fictitious narrative of a deal in the Chicago wheat pit- while the third, The Wolf, will probably have for its pivotal episode the relieving of a famine in an Old World community.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
