His nonfiction works include Tales of Fishing (1925). Many of Grey s novels continue to be extremely popular, and several have been adapted into motion pictures.Review:
“A story that flows as swiftly and irresistibly as the Colorado River. His West is the rainbow land we visit in spirit when the job palls. The wild, lonely, fearfully beautiful Arizona desert has never been better done.”―The New York Times on The Call of the Canyon
“It is the railroad that is the center of interest, that is both hero and heroine. Grey’s pictures of the slow, determined, thwarted, triumphant progress of the line are vivid and thrilling, unforgettable.”―The New York Times on The U.P. Trail
