Zane Grey, America’s master storyteller of the old West, was a passionate angler. He fished as many as three hundred days of the year. This collection, first published in 1925, describes his fishing adventures in exotic locales throughout the Pacific region.

These stories capture the drama and excitement that Grey experienced in being the first person to fish many waters―from the Galapagos Islands to Cabo San Lucas―and in being the first to catch and document many new species of fish. No lover of Zane Grey storytelling will want to miss these real-life adventures.

The Los Angeles Times listed Tales of Fishing Virgin Seas as one of the best nonfiction books of 2000.

About the Author

Zane Grey® (1872–1939), born in Ohio, was practicing dentistry in New York when he and his wife published his first novel. Grey presented the West as a moral battleground in which his characters are destroyed because of their inability to change or are redeemed through a final confrontation with their past. The man whose name is synonymous with Westerns made his first trip west in 1907 at age thirty-five. More than 130 films have been based on his work.
