About this Item

**First Printing* (full # line starts with 1). Hardcover in Fine Condition in a Fine Dust Jacket; whistle-clean inside and out, 2 slight and minor soft bumps on corner of boards and a vague tiny wrinkle on the head and tail of dj spine; there is a xmas gift inscription on the ffep and a tiny printed former-owner address label on top of same page. Otherwise this book is almost pristine. The dj is clean, shiny and unclipped and price-intact ($24.95). Edited and with an introduction by Karen Wylie Pryor, the author's daughter. From the inside dj flap -- "Crunch and Des, the heroes of these stories, chase sailfish, tarpon, barracuda, sharks, and even giant jewfish, and their adventures inspired generations of followers. The plain truth is: they don't write 'em like this anymore." -- Tom Paugh, Editor-in-Chief, Sports Afield. A master story-teller --" For the reader about to breathe Wylie's velvet air, hear the chug of charterboat engines, and cross the indigo-blue of the Gulf Stream for the first time -- I envy you." from the introduction.
