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.

Reviews

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
