Based on an actual bloody dispute in 1880 between wheat farmers and the Southern Pacific Railroad, this shocking tale of greed, betrayal, and a lust for power is played out during the waning days of the western frontier. The Octopus
vividly and relentlessly records social and economic problems of the late-19th century.
Unabridged republication of The Octopus: A Story of California, published by Doubleday, Page & Co., New York, 1901.
