The story of the building of the transcontinental telegraph is given unique treatment by Zane Grey as indicated by the dedication: "To a single strand of iron wire". This is the last novel to be published during Zane Grey's lifetime, and had been dictated to a secretary, as he had suffered a stroke two years previous which prohibited him from using a pencil to write. It is also written in first person, but that does not diminish the power of his prose or descriptive capabilities. Also, this book shows the detailed preparation and research which must have been done; there's so much historical details present. This is a fine novel, one which fittingly belongs among the best written by Zane Grey.
