A novel about Poland from the late 1860s and on. A Polish count takes part in an unsuccessful revolt against Russia. His lands are confiscated and leased to a pious Jew who made his living as a grain merchant. This merchant recognizes that the times are changing as Poland begins leaving the Middle Ages behind, building railroads, highways and modern cities. The sale of timber off the land he leases forms the basis for his accumulation of a fortune. Unfortunately, the Merchant's inate conservatism makes him suspicious of the new revolutionary ideas that also begin to surface in Poland. The author is a winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature.
