Overview

Ray Scott founded the Bass Angler Sportsman Society (B.A.S.S.) and launched a series of tournaments that created a new brand of sports hero: the professional bass fisherman. Roland Martin and Rick Clunn won big tournaments and grew into legends. They inspired countless anglers who dreamed of fishing their way to fame and fortune. BASS WARS vividly describes the beginnings of B.A.S.S. as it follows Clunn, his top rivals, and two of the young dreamers, Randy Blaukat and Randy Moseley, during one grueling and fascinating year in the high-stakes, high-pressure sport of big-league bass fishing. Bass anglers and fishing fans alike consider it a classic.

Author Biography

Nick Taylor's non-fiction books cover a wide variety of subjects, from bass fishing to the Mafia. He has written about the invention of the laser and the years of legal warfare that followed. The Washington Post called his memoir of his parents in their final years "one of the key stories of our time." His American-Made: the Enduring Legacy of the WPA, is an award-winning history of the New Deal's signature jobs program. His collaboration with the late astronaut and U.S. Senator John Glenn produced John Glenn: A Memoir, a New York Times bestseller. Taylor lives with his wife in New York City.
