This is just an added little tidbit. I had always thought of Zane Grey as a purely Western writer and resident. What a surprise the first time Hubby and I traveled to the Florida Keys and lo and behold, we found out that Zane Grey spent much time in the Islamorada area of the Keys attracted there by its incomparable deep sea sport fishing.  In fact, Grey has written a few books on sport fishing and freshwater fishing.

This was all a revealtion to me because I erroneously believed that another great writer and resident of the Keys, Ernest Hemingway, would be the name connected with Florida deep water sport fishing. Zane Grey is absolutely the last writer I would have associated with fishing in the Florida Keys.

 There is even a restaurant named after Zane Grey at the impressive Bass Outdoor Sports store at Mile Marker 81. It has a wonderful view of the sunset.
