Overview

THE RED HEADED OUTFIELD....A NOVEL FOR YOUNG BOYS WHO ARE IN TO BASEBALL! THIS IS A GOOD BASEBALL STORY SET IN THE EARLY WEST. THE VOLUME ALSO INCLUDES SEVERAL OTHER GOOD BASEBALL STORIES TOO.

• This volume includes a “Detailed Biography” of our author, Zane Grey.

Zane Grey is best known today for his dozens of Western novels. But Grey was a fine college and minor league baseball player before he began his writing career, and wrote several baseball books for younger readers. The Red-Headed Outfield was a labor of love for Grey, coming several years after his most famous Western, Riders of the Purple Sage. As with most of his novels, the details and characters are thought to be based loosely on his own life and experience--in this case, his own baseball life, and that of his brother, Romer "R.C." Grey, who also played professional baseball. The Red-Headed Outfield is a series of interlocking stories about kids playing baseball--the kind of book that's rarely written or published today, and we are the lesser for it. When it was originally published it was read by nearly every teen-age boy in the country.

STORIES IN THIS VOLUME:

It was not possible to camp on Red Gilbat's trail. the man was a jack-o'-lantern, a will-o'-the-wisp, a weird, long- legged, long-armed, red-haired illusive phantom.

Meet the Author

Born in 1875, Zane Grey was raised in Zanesville, Ohio, a town founded by his mother’s family. His passion for the American West was aroused in 1907 when Grey toured the West with Buffalo Jones, a noted hunter and adventurer. Grey published a total of 85 books — popular adventure novels that idealized the Western frontier. Riders of the Purple Sage remains his best-known book. He died in 1939 in California.
