Editorial Reviews

Review

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. (The New York 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. (Los Angeles Times)

About 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.

Do you ever wonder what it would be like to go back in time and be one of the first to truly fish virgin waters? Wonder, no more! Zane Grey's voyage into the Pacific is truly adventurous. Zane takes us to primitive islands that were not exactly on the map, and finds a tropical world of wonder. At times he and his cronies cannot land a fish, because the sharks are so thick, other times they grow weary of from too many fish. This book is a great treasure. It is like a fine Ky. bourbon, not to be consumed all at once, but sipped and enjoyed.

Tales of Fishing Virgin Seas is Zane Grey's story of how he pioneered big game fishing in places no one had ever done so before--the Cocos Island, the Galapagos Islands, Perlos Island, Zihuatenejo Bay, and Cape San Lucas. These are masterful tales of adventure and not just fish stories as he tells of catching iguanas and describes the native peoples he encounters a long the way. The book itself is done with "french" folds so it is durable and feels much more expensive than it is. All in all this product is worth owning if you do or do not fish because it is Zane Grey doing the story telling as only he can do it. If you have ever doubted you would enjoy Zane Grey's outdoor and fishing exploits, don't. He is still Zane Grey and he tells it like he sees it in only the way he could do it.

With only a couple of exceptions a true first edition had to be published by Harpers; this is NOT one of those. I suppose it could be a G & D first edition; how that can be told I have no idea. But as to this book: Tales of Fishing Virgin Seas is Zane Grey's story of how he pioneered big game fishing in places no one had ever done so before--the Cocos Island, the Galapagos Islands, Perlos Island, Zihuatenejo Bay, and Cape San Lucas. These are masterful tales of adventure and not just fish stories as he tells of catching iguanas and describes the native peoples he encounters along the way. The paperback book is done with "french" folds so it is durable and feels much more expensive than it is. All in all this product is worth owning if you do or do not fish because it is Zane Grey doing the story telling as only he can do it. If you have ever doubted you would enjoy Zane Grey's outdoor and fishing exploits, don't. He is still Zane Grey and he tells it like he sees it in only the way he could do it.
