Excerpt from book: Ill THE ROYAL PU. .PLE GAME OF THE SEA TO the great majority of anglers it may seem unreasonable to place swordfishing in a class by itself?by far the most magnificent sport in the world with rod and reel. Yet I do not hesitate to make this statement and believe I can prove it. The sport is young at this writing?very little has been written by men who have caught swordfish.

(Pearl) Zane Grey (1872-1939) was an American author best known for his popular adventure novels and pulp fiction that presented an idealized image of the rugged Old West. He became especially interested in the West in 1907, after joining a friend on an expedition to trap mountain lions in Arizona. Grey wrote steadily, but it was only in 1910, and after considerable efforts by his wife, that his first western, Heritage of the Desert, became a bestseller. It propelled a career writing popular novels about manifest destiny and the "conquest of the Wild West. " Two years later he produced his best-known book, Riders of the Purple Sage (1912). He became one of the first millionaire authors. Over the years his habit was to spend part of the year travelling and living an adventurous life and the rest of the year using his adventures as the basis for the stories in his writings. His other works include: Betty Zane (1903), The Young Pitcher (1911), The Border Legion (1916), Wildfire (1917), To the Last Man (1922) and The Day of the Beast (1922).-----------------------------------------------------------------** Check Out More Great Titles From Penny Books **-----------------------------------------------------------------Simply click on "Penny Books (Editor)" under the title to see a full list of all of our great discounted books!!New titles are being added daily, so be sure to check back often to find more great discounted books!!**Check out PennyBooksPublishing.com to get more information about Penny Books, learn how to follow us on Twitter, and look at all of our great titles!!

Zane Grey's “Tales of Florida Fishes” is the first-of-a-kind, comprehensive collection of his original magazine articles and essays, all devoted to his fishing adventures in Florida from 1911 to 1925. This book, with several maps and a useful index, ‎offers a rare glimpse into a unique geographical area and important time period. It contains over 40 rarely seen historic photographs. Grey also reveals a bit of his philosophy of life seen through his passion for fishing from more than a decade of his annual exploration of a Florida that exists now only in history and imagination. ‎Grey’s detailed description of "Rivers of the Everglades", once impenetrable, offers an especially superb introduction to this still remote area, and still very far off the beaten track as it was 100 years ago.

Most of Zane Grey's magazine articles in this publication are presented in their entirety. The longer and later essays are excerpted and explained. See the Table of Contents of this ZGWS publication for a hint at the scope of Grey's fascination with fishing in Florida waters.

Let me say right up front, I am not a fisherman, but I am a lover of Zane Grey and his books. I have enjoyed his westerns and historical fiction for 40 years, and have always wanted these "fishing" books to finish my collection of his works. This book does not disappoint if you like Zane Grey as a writer; for he tells each tale as he tells his westerns with the same descriptive finesse and appreciation of the environment around him. The stories in this book are a diverse group, ranging from Tampico, Mexico, the Yucatan, to Avalon and Catalina Island off the California cost. The fish he goes after are as varied--tarpoon, swordfish, tuna and more. Buy this book, sit back and relax as Zane Grey takes you fishing all over the world.

Zane Grey writes with passion and exquisite detail, clearly his best writing.
He has the capacity to put one there with him as he experiences each fishing endeavor.
His frustrations and triumphs leave a lasting memory that we can personally
relate to. He intertwines wonder and curiosity into the tapestry of his adventures.
They have the universal appeal as he transcends mere story telling into a lasting
remembrance . It has the appeal of life, the very marrow of existence , the essence
of the natural world comes through. .

Being an avid fisherman of Catalina and San Clemente Islands for many years, I found this book to be an excellent read.
Mr. Grey was indeed a true "sportsman", conservationist, and visionary.
He predicted the downfall of the tuna and swordfish populations due to commercial fishing as far back as 1917.
This was a time when fishing equipment was not for the faint-of-heart, and fishing boats were not turbo-charged diesels with the most modern electronics of side scanning sonar, radar, and other means of increasing one's chances at catching a boatload of fish.
He was a true pioneer of the "catch and release" motto.
I thoroughly enjoyed all of the stories, and appreciated the prose and style of one of our great authors in American history.

Zane Grey's fishing expeditions just didn't keep my interest.

My husband really likes Zane Grey's books. Not so much for the writing style but for the information the author gives on the subject that few men can give. Mr. Grey has been on fishing adventures that few men have gone on and to be able to read about them is the reason for the books. My husband has read all of the fishing books Mr. Grey has written and he has really enjoyed them all. This and other books are recommended for fishermen wanted to read about expeditions and experiences that no man can relate to now.

When purchasing this, I really had no idea what to expect.
I was pleasantly surprised when I opened it!

Its a collection of stories by the author about his adventures and happenings out fishing.

It slightly reminds me of The Old Man and the Sea by Hemingway....

It has kept me turning pages throughout! I enjoyed reading it through! I am glad I purchased it. :-)
Ordered this large print book for my mother-in-law since she loves Zane Grey but the only appealing thing about this book after I got it was the attractive cover. The text seems to be fish stories illustrated by grainy black and white images. Not what my mother-in-law would care to read.
