Coral Reef

CoralAmong the items found in Robert Redd’s safe deposit box was a sliver of coral, to which we found the following note attached: “So that you may carry a piece of New South Wales with you, whether your adventures take you down under or back up again. Your friend, Zane Grey. 1935.”

Redd had spent a week fishing Marlin with the adventure novelist off the Australian coast, remarking in his own records of the stay that “so great was the blue beauty of Bermagui that I’m half-sure that I never left.”
