Zane Grey was many things; an author, adventurer, minor league outfielder, dentist. He was a prolific writer whose novels about the wild west captivated readers and provided his wealth. Even Hollywood jumped on the Zane Grey bandwagon, producing over 100 films adapted from his novels. He was a ‘man’s man’ who chased women (despite being married) and chased giant fish. In his later years Grey spent as many as 300 days a year in the pursuit of world record catches. He was successful in this matter, setting over a dozen records in his time including two 1,000 lb + fish, one a Marlin, and the other a Tiger Shark. So it is only logical that he would combine his two passions and give us a collection of fishing tales perhaps unmatched in the literary world.
