Zane Grey Books Overview

Wanderer of the Wasteland

Adam Laret, big, young and headstrong, ran from Ehrenberg to the banks of the Rio Colorado. He was blindly fleeing his scheming, gambling brother and the woman Guerd stole from him. But Adam’s escape wasn’t complete until Guerd, in the company of a sheriff, hunted him down. Then Adam committed the ultimate crime. With the mark of Cain upon him he travelled into the desert to atone for his sins. In a vast, harsh world of heat and beauty, of stealthy creatures and gnawing starvation, Adam faced death and madmen, Indians and strangers who lived where life was impossible. But nothing he did, no act of courage, righteousness or violence, washed Adam clean. Until he met a woman and made a choice: to fight his way back to civilisation, the most dangerous place of all…

Stairs of Sand

A group of fierce young men obsessed with and haunted by one beautiful young woman must find the strength to get on with their lives and face a violent future.

Knights of the Range

‘Is Frayne an outlaw?’ Holly Ripple asked. ‘Miss Holly, it takes bad men to cope with bad men on this frontier. If you could hire him, he’d be a whole outfit in himself. Course, a lady like you wouldn’t have Frayne’s sort around your ranch.’…
‘Wouldn’t I?’When her father dies, sheltered young Holly Ripple gains possession of his vast cattle empire, plagued by rustlers and desperadoes. But she stands firm and soon has earned the reputation of a strong willed cattle queen.

Forlorn River

Ben Ide is a failure in the horse trade because he loves horses more than money. A few bad deals have turned the world against him. His greatest adversary is his father, who thinks Ben good for nothing. Determined to show what he is made of and what he can do, Ben pursues a herd of wild horses. The herd leads him directly into danger: cattle thieves with connections in high places. Distrusted by the woman he loves, menaced by killers, and hounded by slander, Ben finds his day of reckoning at the edge of Forlorn River. What he does next will make him an outcast or a hero. First published in 1927, Forlorn River sets in motion the events and characters that extend into Nevada, also available as a Bison Book. This Authorized Edition carries a new foreword by Zane Grey’s son, Loren Grey.

Nevada

He was called Nevada, a name he took to lose his past. As a boy he had been thrown among brutal and evil men. He had worked himself above their influence time and again, only to be thrown back, by his own desire for justice or vengeance, into the midst of strife. With a new identity he made a new reputation, but old troubles and old enemies haunted him wherever he went. Nevada was the quiet type who would rather work hard and plan for better days. Skilled with a horse and a rope, he could also shoot fast and straight. As he got closer to thinking he could get back to the woman he loved, a gang of rustlers threatened everything. Once again, he had to choose between risks, if his passions didn’t choose for him. First published in 1926 and 1927, Nevada, the suspenseful sequel to Forlorn River, continues to be one of Zane Grey’s most beloved novels. Never out of print, it is now available in an Authorized Edition with a new foreword by Zane Grey’s son, Loren Grey.

The Drift Fence

Zane Grey evokes the atmosphere, hardships and possibilities of the Old West like nobody else. In ‘The Drift Fence‘, Jim Taft, a stranger from Missouri, has the Herculean task of fencing off a large Arizonan ranch to prevent cattle rustling, in the face of fierce local opposition. There’s also the lovely Molly Dunn to distract him; but how can he hope to woo the sister of his chief enemy?

Some way a grizzly bear would come in when I tried to explain forestry to my brother. Hunting grizzlies! he cried. ‘Why, Ken, father says you’ve been reading dime novels.’ Just wait, Hal, till he comes out here. I’ll show him that forestry isn’t just bear hunting. My brother Hal and I were camping a few days on the Susquehanna River, and we had divided the time between fishing and tramping. Our camp was on the edge of a forest some eight miles from Harrisburg. The property belonged to our father, and he had promised to drive out to see us. But he did not come that day, and I had to content myself with winning Hal over to my side.

The Young Pitcher

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.

ORG It may seem strange to you that out of all the stories I heard on the Rio Grande I should choose as first that of Buck Duane outlaw and gunman. But, indeed, Ranger Coffee’s story of the last of the Duanes has haunted me, and I have given full rein to imagination and have retold it in my own way. It deals with the old law the old border days therefore it is better first. Soon, perchance, I shall have the pleasure of writing of the border of to day, which in Joe Sitter’s laconic speech, ‘Shore is ‘most as bad an’ wild as ever!’ In the North and East there is a popular idea that the frontier of the West is a thing long past, and rememb ered now only in stories. As I think of this I remember Ranger Sitter when he made that remark, while he grimly stroked an unhealed bullet wound. And I remember the giant Vaughn, that typical son of stalwart Texas, sitting there quietly with bandaged head, his thoughtful eye boding ill to the outlaw who had ambushed him. Only a few months have passed since then when I had my memorable sojourn with you and yet, in that short time, Russell and Moore have crossed the Divide, like Rangers.

The Rainbow Trail

These days, we remember Zane Grey for his ninety novels set in America’s West, including Lone Star Rangers and Riders of the Purple Sage. We may know that he was an inductee to the Hall of Great Westerners of the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. But the thing you really need to know about The Rainbow Trail is that it’s the sequel to Riders of the Purple Sage, which may well be Grey’s most remembered work. Here John Sheppard is a preacher who becomes good friends with the Venters who always seemed haunted. Eventually, Mr. Venters reveals that he was once a horse rider for a woman named Jane Withersteen a rich Mormon and her adopted daughter Fay Larkin. However, Jane’s churchmen were displeased with her association with non Mormons and the evil Mormons drove them into a narrow valley, and trapped them there. Venters had always intended on returning to the valley to search for the Jane and Fay, circumstances have prevented him from doing it. John Sheppard is fascinated by this story and wants to what he can to relieve the haunted look he sees in the eyes of Mr. and Mrs. Venters so he attempts to discover what happened to Jane and Fay. He discovers that Fay Larkin may still be alive and that her life has become the stuff of adventure, including kidnapping! And that somehow she has the strength to survive the most terrible of circumstances…

The Spirit of the Border

The Spirit of the Border is the second in Zane Grey’s Ohio River Valley trilogy. The protagonist, frontier Indian fighter Lew Wetzel, and his opponent, border renegade Jim Girty, were historical figures who in 1777 clashed in the wilds of the western Virginia border. Wetzel takes as his partner Jonathan Zane, brother of Colonel Ebenezer Zane and Betty Zane, the heroine of the battle of Fort Henry. Together, Wetzel and Zane pursue a relentless war of attrition against Wyandotte, Shawnee, and Seneca Indians. Colonel Zane is opposed to them in his feeling that settlers and Indian fighters alike little know the proud independence, the wisdom, the stainless chastity of honor true of many members of the Indian nations. Wetzel s conflict with Jim Girty and his Indian renegades is centered on the Village of Peace, an enclave of Moravian missionaries and their Christian converts among the Indians. Girty and his allies fall upon these Christian Indians when they are at prayer in the chapel, and the resulting massacre finds only two boys escaping from the carnage. Wetzel and Zane pursue Girty, and there is a final confrontation at Beautiful Spring. The Spirit of the Border was first published in 1906. Coupled with the appearance of Betty Zane in 1903, it further established Zane Grey s reputation as a historical novelist. Grey s Ohio trilogy concludes with The Last Trail. The authentic text to each volume is supplemented with a foreword by Loren Grey, son of the author.

The Last Trail

The Last Trail is the third and final novel in Zane Grey’s Ohio River Valley trilogy. In many ways, this concluding volume of the saga is one of perpetuation. The wilderness along the Ohio has been rapidly disappearing. Forests have been replaced by farms. Woodsmen, hunters, and frontiersmen are becoming farmers. This is true, in fact, for almost everyone except that strange and wonderful character, the border Nemesis, the mysterious, shadowy, elusive man, whom few pioneers ever saw, but of whom all knew, Lew Wetzel. Known by the Indians as le vent de la mort the wind of death, Wetzel and his partner Jonathan Zane are hard on the trail of white rustlers led by Simon Girty and Bing Leggitt. One night at their campfire Helen Sheppard and her father, who have become lost in the forest on their way to Fort Henry, are approached by Wetzel and Zane. For Jonathan Zane and Helen Sheppard this accidental encounter is the beginning of a romance that will be fraught with many dangers. Betty Zane, whose dash for gunpowder in the defense of Fort Henry during the Revolutionary War is now legendary, and her brother, Colonel Ebenezer Zane, are also among the characters in The Last Trail, older now, sharing their wisdom and experiences with a younger generation. The Last Trail was first published in 1909. Two years before, Zane Grey had taken his first journey to the Far West, and it would be in the regions west of the Mississippi that his subsequent Western romances would be set. Yet his frontier trilogy made secure his reputation as a historical novelist.

The Short Stop

1909. Frontispiece by H.S. Delay. Millions of readers have hailed Zane Grey as a writer of Western stories but, strange to say, few of them know that he was once a college and professional baseball player. In this story he applies his knowledge of the game to deliver the tale of a young man and his love of the baseball. The book begins: Chase Alloway hurried out of the factory door and bent his steps homeward. He wore a thoughtful, anxious look, as of one who expected trouble. Yet there was a briskness in his stride that showed the excitement under which he labored was not altogether unpleasant. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.

Wildfire

Purchase one of 1st World Library’s Classic Books and help support our free internet library of downloadable eBooks. Visit us online at www. 1stWorldLibrary. ORG For some reason the desert scene before Lucy Bostil awoke varying emotions a sweet gratitude for the fullness of her life there at the Ford, yet a haunting remorse that she could not be wholly content a vague loneliness of soul a thrill and a fear for the strangely calling future, glorious, unknown. She longed for something to happen. It might be terrible, so long as it was wonderful. This day, when Lucy had stolen away on a forbidden horse, she was eighteen years old. The thought of her mother, who had died long ago on their way into this wilderness, was the one drop of sadness in her joy. Lucy loved everybody at Bostil’s Ford and everybody loved her. She loved all the horses except her father’s favorite racer, that perverse devil of a horse, the great Sage King. Lucy was glowing and rapt with love for all she beheld from her lofty perch: the green and pink blossoming hamlet beneath her, set between the beauty of the gray sage expanse and the ghastliness of the barren heights; the swift Colorado sullenly thundering below in the abyss; the Indians in their bright colors, riding up the river trail; the eagle poised like a feather on the air, and a beneath him the grazing cattle making black dots on the sage; the deep velvet azure of the sky; the golden lights on the bare peaks and the lilac veils in the far ravines; the silky rustle of a canyon swallow as he shot downward in the sweep of the wind; the fragrance of cedar, the flowers of the spear pointed mescal; the brooding silence, the beckoning range, the purple distance.

Desert Gold

ORG A FACE haunted Cameron a woman’s face. It was there in the white heart of the dying campfire; it hung in the shadows that hovered over the flickering light; it drifted in the darkness beyond. This hour, when the day had closed and the lonely desert night set in with its dead silence, was one in which Cameron’s mind was thronged with memories of a time long past of a home back in Peoria, of a woman he had wronged and lost, and loved too late. He was a prospector for gold, a hunter of solitude, a lover of the drear, rock ribbed infinitude, because he wanted to be alone to remember. A sound disturbed Cameron’s reflections. He bent his head listening. A soft wind fanned the paling embers, blew sparks and white ashes and thin smoke away into the enshrouding circle of blackness. His burro did not appear to be moving about. The quiet split to the cry of a coyote. It rose strange, wild, mournful not the howl of a prowling upland beast baying the campfire or barking at a lonely prospector, but the wail of a wolf, full voiced, crying out the meaning of the desert and the night.

The Light of Western Stars

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.

Cabin Gulch

This wonderful, dramatic story was written in 1915, but for ninety years it has only existed in a profoundly censored version, ‘The Border Legion.’ Joan Randle, in a spirit of anger, sends Jim Cleve out into the lawless country of the mining frontier in Idaho Territory to test his mettle as a man. Then, regretting their quarrel, she goes in pursuit of him, in hope of turning him back, only to be taken captive by the notorious mining camp and stagecoach bandit, Jack Kells. Kells is so intent on having Joan to himself that he kills for it, even some of his own men. When a huge gold strike is made at Alder Creek, Kells and his gang move in to loot the miners. Most disheartening of all for Joan is the fact that Jim Cleve has joined Kells’s gang. This powerful tale of tragedy, romance, historical realism, and hope can now at last be read as Zane Grey wrote it.

With 109 films based on his work, Zane Grey set a record yet to be equaled by any other author. He was a writer who charted the interiors of the soul through encounters with the wilderness.

The Border Legion

Excerpt from book: CHAPTER III BILL HORN, leader of that caravan, had a large amount of gold which he was taking back East. No one in his party, except a girl, knew that he had the fortune. Horn had gone West at the beginning of the gold strikes, but it was not until ’53 that any success attended his labors. Later he struck it rich, and in 1865, as soon as the snow melted on the mountain passes, he got together a party of men and several women and left Sacramento. He was a burly miner, bearded and uncouth, of rough speech and taciturn nature, and absolutely fearless. At Ogden, Utah, he had been advised not to attempt to cross the Wyoming hills with so small a party, for the Sioux Indians had gone on the war path. Horn was leading his own caravan and finding for himself the trail that wound slowly eastward. He did not have a scout or hunter with him. Eastward traveling caravans were wont to be small and poorly outfitted, for only the homesick, the failures, the wanderers, and the lawless turned their faces from the Golden State. At the start Horn had eleven men, three women, and the girl. On the way he had killed one of the men.; and another, together with his wife, had yielded to persuasion of friends at Ogden and had left the party. So when Horn halted for camp one afternoon in a beautiful valley in the Wyoming hills there were only nine men with him. On a long journey through wild country strangers grow close together or far apart. Bill Horn did not think much of the men who had accepted the chance he offered them, and daily he grew more aloof. They were not a responsible crowd, and the best he could get out of them was the driving of oxen and camp chores indifferently done. He had to kill the meat and find the water and keep the watch. Upon entering the Wyoming hills region Horn sh…

The Desert Of Wheat

Author of more than sixty popular, highly influential Western novels, Zane Grey was born ‘Pearl’ Zane Gray. Although no one knows for certain, it seems likely that Grey thought that ‘Pearl’ was too feminine a name for an author of Western adventure. Zane was Grey’s family name, and he was intensely proud of his Western pioneer heritage. His first published book, Betty Zane 1803, was inspired by the true story of Revolutionary War frontier heroism in his family. Grey’s early books about his own family were not commercially successful. Beginning with his first Western novel, The Heritage of the Desert, Zane Grey launched upon one of the most influential writing careers in American history. The Desert Of Wheat was first published in 1919. It tells the story of Kurt Dorn, a young American wheat farmer who is torn between saving his farm and defending the woman he loves, and defending America during the First World War. Kurt does eventually choose to go to war, where he realizes how futile and destructive warfare is. With a lyrical ending, The Desert of War is different from Grey’s Western novels, but equally satisfying to readers. The Desert Of Wheat was made into a film called Riders of the Dawn in 1920.

ORG It was inevitable that in my efforts to write romantic history of the great West I should at length come to the story of a feud. For long I have steered clear of this rock. But at last I have reached it and must go over it, driven by my desire to chronicle the stirring events of pioneer days. Even to day it is not possible to travel into the remote corners of the West without seeing the lives of people still affected by a fighting past. How can the truth be told about the pioneering of the West if the struggle, the fight, the blood be left out? It cannot be done. How can a novel be stirring and thrilling, as were those times, unless it be full of sensation? My long labors have been devoted to making stories resemble the times they depict. I have loved the West for its vastness, its contrast, its beauty and color and life, for its wildness and violence, and for the fact that I have seen how it developed great men and women who died unknown and unsung

Lion Home’This is virgin ground, where no man has ever hunted,’ said Buffalo Jones. ‘We stumbled onto a lion home, the breeding place of the deadly canyon cougar.’Powell’s Plateau was the most remote, inaccessible corner of the Grand Canyon when Zane Grey went there with a buffalo hunter, a forest ranger, a hard bitten Utah cowboy, and a Navajo scout. Armed with ropes and rifles, the five men rode in on half wild mustangs, their eyes peeled for cougar sign. They were not disappointed. Lion trails snaked through the brush and up the rocky cliffs on every side. They were in the last stronghold of the magnificent man killers!Even more exciting than his best selling fiction, this is a true story from the immortal pen of America’s greatest storyteller of outdoor adventure Zane Grey.

The Call of the Canyon

ORG What subtle strange message had come to her out of the West? Carley Burch laid the letter in her lap and gazed dreamily through the window. It was a day typical of early April in New York, rather cold and gray, with steely sunlight. Spring breathed in the air, but the women passing along Fifty seventh Street wore furs and wraps. She heard the distant clatter of an L train and then the hum of a motor car. A hurdy gurdy jarred into the interval of quiet. Glenn has been gone over a year, she mused, ‘three months over a year and of all his strange letters this seems the strangest yet.’ She lived again, for the thousandth time, the last moments she had spent with him. It had been on New Year’s Eve, 1918. They had called upon friends who were staying at the McAlpin, in a suite on the twenty first floor overlooking Broadway. And when the last quarter hour of that eventful and tragic year began slowly to pass with the low swell of whistles and bells, Carley’s friends had discreetly left her alone with her lover, at the open window, to watch and hear the old year out, the new year in. Glenn Kilbourne had returned from France early that fall, shell shocked and gassed, and otherwise incapacitated for service in the army a wreck of his former sterling self and in many unaccountable ways a stranger to her. Cold, silent, haunted by something, he had made her miserable with his aloofness. But as the bells began to ring out the year that had been his ruin Glenn had drawn her close, tenderly, passionately, and yet strangely, too.

Under the Tonto Rim

Lucy Watson, a young schoolteacher, is appointed welfare instructor in a community of isolated backwoods folk.

The Thundering Herd

He proves efficient as a skinner, and what follows is almost a literal baptism in sweat and blood. Fighting the Comanches and Kiowas, some unscrupulous white hunters, and his own conscience, he ages fast all the faster in facing obstacles to love s consummation with Milly. She, like Tom, is in constant danger from every side. Finally, they can be united in mind and body only if he agrees to her one condition. The Thundering Herd, originally published in 1925, is Zane Grey s great lament for the passing of the buffalo. Grounded in the author s sense of western history, it shows in no uncertain terms how white men were debased by the wanton destruction of the herds.

Arizona Ames

From AudioFile: Arizona Ames did not set out to make his mark as a gunfighter it just happened. O’Neill’s slow, soft speech perfectly portrays Ames. Actor teacher O’Neill has a low key, pleasant voice that strains, at times, to feminize voices for Arizona’s conquests. In typical Grey fashion, Arizona not only removes the bad guys, but he charms the ladies, spoken for or not. O’Neill ably moves from Texas drawl to blustery Irish accent to down home good old boy. He also has a knack for making Grey’s sometimes unusual word choices sound natural. S.C.A. c AudioFile, Portland, Maine This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Last of the Great Scouts

Buffalo Bill: Last of the Great Scouts is the entertaining and fascinating story of William F. Cody, known to millions for over a century as the legendary Buffalo Bill. Born in a log cabin in Iowa, he was a buffalo hunter, stagecoach driver, Pony Express rider, Civil War soldier, and a scout for the U.S. army before beginning his career as the star of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West, which electrified audiences around the world from 1883 to 1917. Bill s sister, Helen Cody Wetmore, has written an affectionate biography that recalls fully both the man and the legend, his colorful personality and ironic wit, as well as his celebrated international status. Some of her anecdotes read like the dime novels they were probably based on, but others provide fascinating glimpses of frontier life. Before becoming a showman, Cody tried his luck as a land speculator, a hotelkeeper, and a justice of the peace. These pages also show the author herself growing up on the wild frontier. Humorous and informative, Buffalo Bill introduces us to an unforgettable and controversial figure in American frontier history. This commemorative edition includes the full text of the original 1899 edition, a foreword and afterword by novelist Zane Grey, illustrations by Frederic Remington, E. W. Deming, and Rosa Bonheur from a rare 1903 edition, and an introduction by scholar Joy S. Kasson. Helen Cody Wetmore was one of five sisters of Buffalo Bill and her book Buffalo Bill was often sold at Buffalo Bill s Wild West shows. Joy S.

The Last of the Duanes

When this unforgettable novel was first published in a much shorter form in a magazine in 1914, it was a rousing success and was made into a movie four times by 1941. Yet when Zane Grey submitted the full length manuscript to his book publisher, it was rejected because it contained too much gunplay. And so a masterpiece of Western fiction remained unpublished in book form for more than 80 years. Finally, this powerful tale is available in its entirety in paperback for the first time. Available now.

The Redheaded Outfield

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; Zane Grey’s ballplayers were cultural currency for boys back then, just like the characters in the Harry Potter stories are today. And the stories hold up. There’s action; there’s humor; there’s good baseball strategy. Winners don’t cheat, and cheaters don’t win, and playing the game the right way is valued above all. Grey’s other baseball books, The Shortstop and The Young Pitcher, are also now available. And his many Westerns have never gone out of print, and are available in many editions. Enjoy The Red-Headed Outfield, and pass these great stories on to yet another generation of young readers!

The Savage Kingdom is made up of three stories about animals and their relationship with men. In ‘Tappan’s Burro,’ a prospector risks his life to save a sickly animal. ‘The Wolf Tracker’ is the story of a killer wolf, Old Gray. Cowboys and hunters take to his trail but no one can catch him…

Tales of Freshwater Fishing

Zane Grey, known and loved primarily for his Western novels, was an avid fisherman. When his writing started paying off, he managed to spend as many as 300 days a year enjoying the sport. And while he is remembered for his record breaking catches, such as the 464 pound marlin caught off the coast of Tahiti, Zane Grey also enjoyed freshwater fishing for bass, trout, steelhead, and salmon.

Bell. Illustrated with three magnificent color plates and dozens of black and white illustrations, this wide ranging volume is fun to read and practical at the same time.

Tales of Southern Rivers

When not writing his famous Western novels, Zane Grey was an insatiable angler.

An American Angler in Australia

Australia brings to mind images of the Great Barrier Reef, great white sharks, huge crocodiles and friendly people.

Tales of the Angler’s Eldorado

In Tales of the Angler’s Eldorado, Grey fishes New Zeland’s legenday streams.

Zane Grey on Fishing

Though he made his name and his fortune as an author of western novels, Zane Grey’s best writing has to do with fishing. There he was free from the conventions of the western genre and the expectations of the market, and he was able to blend his talent for narrative with his keen eye for detail and humor, much of it self deprecating, into books and articles that are both informative and exciting.
His first published fishing article appeared in 1902, and he continued to write books and articles on angling until his death in 1939. From the trout streams and bass rivers of the East to the steelhead rivers of the Northwest; from the offshore angling of Nova Scotia and California to the unexplored waters of New Zealand and the South Sea islands, Grey was constantly in motion, sometimes fishing three hundred days a year, always writing to support his passion. At one time or another he held more than a dozen saltwater records, yet he always returned from the big game to the freshwater streams he had learned to love as a boy.
This book is a selection of some of Grey’s best work, and the stories and excerpts reveal a man who understood that angling is more than an activity it is a way of seeing, a way of being more fully a part of the natural world. No writer exceeds Zane Grey’s ability to integrate the fishing experience with a world he saw so vividly.

A Century of Great Western Stories

John Jakes, 1 New York Times bestselling author of such acclaimed historical novels as North and South and The Kent Family Chronicles has long been both a fan and a distinguished author of novels and stories of the American West. Now, with the turning of the millennium, he has compiled in one volume a century’s worth of his favorite Western fiction. To illustrate the evolution of the genre, Jakes has included such legendary authors as Owen Wister, Louis L’Amour, and Zane Grey along side their more contemporary peers such as Loren Estleman and Elmer Kelton. While the stories have changed over the years, certain timeless themes of Western fiction remain constant. At the heart of the stories are ideas that have become synonymous with the American dream the frontier spirit, individual freedoms, and man’s relationship with the land. A Century of Great Western Stories is essentially a retrospective of western writing over the past century, but Jakes also sets out to give readers a glimpse of what the future might hold for western fiction. While trends in publishing might not always be promising, the current crop of contemporary Western authors show that the old west will always have a place in the world of fiction. Like the American dream which it celebrates, Western fiction will perservere. Featuring classc stories by:John Jakes, Mantiow and IronhandJohn M. Cunningham, The Tin Star, which became the classic Western film, High NoonJack London, All Gold CanyonLouis L’Amour, The Gift of CochiseThomas Thompson, Gun JobElmer Kelton, The Burial of Letty StrayhornLoren D.
