This was a book that Zane Grey was compelled to write. He felt very sympathetic toward the physically and mentally tortured veterans who returned after WWI. There were no parades, no excitement, no parties, no jubilation. Battle Scars and emotional wounds of Zane Grey's era mirrored the future of what also would occur after Vietnam.

Author of to the last man, The heritage of the desert, The mysterious rider, etc. They sent socks and cigarettes and candy and books. Then-when the months had gone by and the novelty had worn off-when we went against the hell of real war-sick or worn out, sleepless and miserable, crippled or half demented with terror and dread and longing for home-then, by God, they quit! Oh, no, Blair-not all of them, remonstrated Lane, unsteadily.

The ship glided slowly up the Narrows; and from its deck Daren Lane saw the noble black outline of the Statue of Liberty limned against the clear gold of sunset. A familiar old pang in his breast-longing and homesickness and agony, together with the physical burn of gassed lungs-seemed to swell into a profound overwhelming emotion. My own-my native land!" he whispered, striving to wipe the dimness from his eyes. Was it only two years or twenty since he had left his country to go to war? A sense of strangeness dawned upon him.

This was a book that Zane Grey was compelled to write. He felt very sympathetic toward the physically and mentally tortured veterans who returned after WWI. There were no parades, no excitement, no parties, no jubilation. Their returns seemed anti-climactical. They were victims again. Society had changed
Morals had slipped. The roaring twenties was in full swing. Speak-easies beckoned. Those who had finances, fled to Europe, seeking excitement, titillation, and escape. Values had radically changed. The day of the flappers was in. Battle Scars and emotional wounds of Zane Grey's era mirrored the future of what also would occur after Vietnam.
Daren Lane stared with tear dimmed eyes, "My own---my native land!" he whispered, overcome by awe that he had survived to return. "Do you long, yet dread to get home?"
He hadn't heard from Helen for over a year. He had had dreams of glory, but found cold, bitter as gall, ashes on his lips. But, faith could not die. Resignation, after being shell-shocked should have brought peace. It hadn't. They had sustained loss of health and happiness. The future loomed gray, cold and gloomy.
The trio of disabled soldiers spent three days at a barracks-hospital in Bedford Park. They were released to return home.
Swann had done the most to harm Lane. Now, he begged to be saved. Swann was afraid to die; he feared the unknown. Why had he come through the vortex of death?
That strange cold knot in his breast, that coil of pain, seemed to spring and tear, quivering through his body. He felt breath catching in his lungs. Faces and voices became indistinguishable. He sensed that soul and love were the same in women.
Mel had kept something from Daren. One of his buddies, Blair, had died. The war was finally almost over. Gone was the love that had no recompense. This is a mind sobering book. It could easily be describing veterans of today.

This is one of the greatest and saddest books I've read in a very long time!! A wonderful author! No wonder my Dad read all his books! The things that happen to our brave soldiers when they come home, is a great disgrace that never should be allowed to happen!!! The American people should be ashamed! But mores the pity, they are not!! I highly recommend every man and woman should read this book! It just might wake up a few people!

The worst story of Grey's that I have ever read. If he was alive I would prescribe him prozac. I cannot fathom how bleak his view of society was He had an unrealistic view of women and human nature with a very prudish comprehension of love and relationships do yourself a favor and skip this one.

I rated this book with one star because I do not like reading stories about disabled vets retuning home after a war. Even though I only read three chapters, I determined the story takes place after World War I. I like to read westerns, mysteries and thrillers.

This is a typical Zane Grey story. I find it fascinating that as my life is drawing to a close, I am returning to the literature of my youth for relaxation.

Nothing is new under the sun. This could be true now, To think this was written about 1920 is amazing it just goes to show how people haven't changed. The story is about a young man who returns from WW1 after being in battle for 3 years many battle scars and emotional wounds. Coming home was a dream that turned into a nightmare. It was written in ZG great style but it is not a western, but I really enjoyed it.

Worst book I have ever tried to read. I gave up about half way.
A rather sad but interesting story.
