Zane Grey fished up to 300 days of the year. But, with all that time on the water, there was nothing more exciting or more compelling than the really BIG fish—the giants of the sea. Blue fin tuna are (even today) still sometimes pursued with harpoons! There's the story of a swordfish that was hooked at 10:30 in the morning and played until 11:30 that night—only to...! Tales of Swordfish and Tuna will dazzle and thrill any fishing heart.
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 in Altadena, California.
