KIRKUS REVIEW

18 yarns of world 'round fishing have been collected from eight of Grey's books (1919-1937) on this sport and each is introduced by an explanatory, anecdotal paragraph. They add up to a good collection of the thrills and obsessions that drove Grey to dream bigger and better and rarer opponents, of mastery over monsters and battles, not always to the death, with the giants of the sea. From tarpon in Florida, to swordfish, lmon and steelheads, to a phantom fish in Tahiti and adventures in New Zealand, this follows a compulsive quest in lively, sometimes breathless fashion. All devout sportsman will want to wet a line in this.
