A Deal in Wheat and Other Stories
A Deal in Wheat and Other Stories of the New and Old West is a collection of short stories written by the American author Frank Norris. It was published posthumously in 1903 and composed primarily of recently published works. I. The first of the five sections of the story, entitled ""The Bear- Wheat at Sixty-Two,"" takes place in rural Kansas. Sam Lewiston leaves his wife, Emma, home on the ranch while he goes into town one last time to try to sell his wheat to Bridges & Co., Grain Dealers before being forced out of the market. At sixty-two cents a bushel, Lewiston can no longer afford to raise wheat and must take a job with his wife's brother in Chicago. II. The next section, ""The Bull- Wheat at a Dollar-Ten,"" introduces the two main players of the Chicago-run wheat business, the bear and the bull: Treslow and Hornung. When Treslow had let the price fall to sixty-two cents, Hornung had almost run him out of business...
