Editorial Reviews

Los Angeles Times
This is a lovely new edition of Zane Grey's 1925 classic, written after he had made enough money in Hollywood to purchase a three-masted schooner, which he named the Fisherman. ...It is a fine example of simple writing that allows a reader to turn the next corner with the author, catching the unexpected at eye level, among the finest and most difficult literary achievements.
The New York Times
Anyone who loves tales of adventure into far seas, unusual experiences, accounts of exotic and almost intoxicating beauty, to say nothing of those enthusiastic fishermen for whose perusal the book is especially intended, will find it a fascinating volume.

Meet the Author

Zane Grey was born in Zanesville, Ohio in 1872. He attended the University of Pennsylvania on a baseball scholarship where he became a dentist. However, his heart was not in dentistry, it was in writing. In 1905 he married Lina Roth. They had three children, and eventually moved to California where Zane could both experience the West and write about it. He was one of America's most prolific authors, writing almost 90 books. He died of heart failure in 1939.

    Must read for those who love to fish...

    Zane Grey's became very famous and very rich off of the books he wrote involving stories of the Old West. He used some of those riches to finance his many journeys around the world to explore untapped fisheries. His writings of this portion of his life offer readers many insights into the history of sportfishing. Zane was a true pioneer of the sport and I highly recommend these books to anyone who has a love of fishing and its rich history.

    This book focuses on Zane's adventures fishing in the Pacific... Mexico, Cocos Islands, Galapagos Islands.
