Summary

Tales of Fishes, by Zane Grey presents a novelist wielding pen and rod simultaneously, thereby banishing a host of preconceptions concerning the sedentary nature of angling. To one unacquainted with tuna fish except in salad, the narrative becomes a revelation of adventure. Swordfish, shark, and dolphin yield zestful chapters.  
 
American author Zane Grey is best known as a pioneer of the Western literary genre, which idealized the Western frontier and the men and women who settled the region.  
 
Following in his father s footsteps, Grey studied dentistry while on a baseball scholarship to the University of Pennsylvania. Grey s athletic talent led to a short career in the American minor league before he established his dentistry practice. As an outlet to the tedium of dentistry, Grey turned to writing, and finally abandoned his dental practice to write full time. Over the course of his career Grey penned more than ninety books, including the best-selling Riders of the Purple Sage. Many of Grey s novels were adapted for film and television.

    " The great panther leaped as a kitten leaps at a dead leaf whirling overhead, struck left and right into the empty air that sung under the strokes, landed noiselessly and leaped again and again, while the half purr, half growl gathered head as steam rumbles in a boiler. ' I am Bagheera-- in the jungle-- in the night, and my strength is in me. Who shall stay my stroke?'"  -- from " Letting in the Jungle"   For Rudyard Kipling, the jungle was at once a fierce and an infinitely gentle place. The Noah' s Ark assortment of animal characters that populate his stories are endowed with personality and temperament-- their human counterparts are not difficult to recognize. Even Mowgli, the wolf-child, is secondary to the magnetism and allure of the jungle and its exotic creatures. Part Two includes the following stories: How Fear Came; The Law of the Jungle; The Miracle of Purun Bhagat; A Song of Kabir; Letting in the Jungle; Mowgli' s Song Against People; The Undertakers; A Ripple Song; The King' s Ankus; The Song of the Little Hunter; Quiquern; Angutivun Tina; Red Dog; Chil' s Song, The Spring Running; and The Outsong.
