The Young Pitcher: A Classic Baseball Story By Zane Grey
eBook (ePub): $1.99
This book evokes vivid images of intercollegiate sports in the early 1900s. The characters are warm and well-developed. The setting is nostalgic and timeless. Readers will puzzle over "Frosh on... More > the fifth" and chuckle over the potato toss. The reader can feel the despair when Ken finds out what he has done to the Captain of the college baseball team, and feels his chances of making the varsity squad slip away in an instant. No one can keep from laughing out loud when the perfume is spread or the sweater put on. The combination of setting, characters and good old-fashoned baseball makes for very pleasant reading. Personally, I recommend this book be read every Spring in anticipation of the upcoming baseball season, such as I have done for the last twenty-three years. It is a wonderful way to get in the mood for great battles on the ball diamond, as well as recapture the joys of youth. Reading this book could become as much a pastime as baseball itself.< Less
The Rainbow Trail: Classic American Western Novel By Zane Grey
eBook (ePub): $1.99
The Rainbow Trail known as The Desert Crucible, published in 1915, was a sequel to Riders of the Purple Sage. This book displays the fate of Jane and Lassiter and Fay. The novel happens 10 years... More > after the Riders of the Purple Sage story. The wall to Surprise Valley has been destroyed, and Jane Withersteen has to decide between the Lassiter's life and Fay's engagement to a Mormon. The protagonists' strong antagonism to Mormon polygamy is clearly important in both novels but in Rainbow Trail this theme is treated more obviously. The plots of both books revolve around the victimization of women in the Mormon culture: Situations in "Riders of the Purple Sage" are centered on the fighting of a Mormon woman who sacrifices her wealth and social status to avoid becoming a junior wife of the local church leader, while "Rainbow Trail" is contrary to the fanatical older Mormons with the rising generation of Mormon women who will not be resistant to polygamy and Mormon men who will not seek it.< Less
The Young Forester: Classic American Western Novel By Zane Grey
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Sample character names include Hal, Ken, Dick, Ward, Smith, Jim, and an unscrupulous for-hire Latino generally referred to as "the Greaser." Lovely, just lovely. Societally-acceptable... More > racism aside, it's a quick and engaging, if moderately insulting, read (for, among other things, the suspension of disbelief required at frequent intervals, mostly corresponding to the practically metaphysical knowledge of forestry and government regulations that escapes our teen-aged hero's lips during long rides in the saddle in-between plot twists). And yet, it's an entertaining romp in the finest pulp tradition. Plus, I was referred to this fictionalized account of a zealous "Pinchot progressive" in the highly recommended telling of the 1910 Bitterroot Mountains fire "The Big Burn" by Timothy Egan. Yes, go read that fine book first, and then come back to consume this one.< Less
Tales of Fishes: Classic Fishing Story By Zane Grey
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Zane Grey indulged his interest in fishing with visits to Australia and New Zealand. He first visited New Zealand in 1926 and caught several large fish of great variety, including a mako shark, a... More > ferocious fighter which presented a new challenge. Grey established a base at Otehei Bay Lodge on Urupukapuka Island in the Bay of Islands, which became a magnet for the rich and famous and wrote many articles in international sporting magazines highlighting the uniqueness of New Zealand fishing which has produced heavy-tackle world records for the major billfish, striped marlin, black marlin, blue marlin and broadbill. He held numerous world records during this time and invented the teaser, a hookless bait that is still used today to attract fish. Grey made three further fishing trips to New Zealand. The second was January to April 1927, the third December 1928 to March 1929, and the last December 1932 to February 1933.< Less
