Marquesa is the archaic name for the Marquesas Keys, an "extraordinary place [which] rises with an elevation not much greater than a sandbar along the seam of . . . the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean . . . 25 miles west of Key West, this unique atoll is the most remote area of the Key West National Wildlife Refuge" (Introduction). An account of time spent by the author in this fantastic area, including accounts of fishing for Tarpon, fly-fishing, boating, shark attacks and much more.

This copy is inscribed on the half-title, "To Tony - Who has contributed so much to the sport of fly fishing and its literary expression ... Best wishes from the Tropics, Jeffrey Cardenas Key West May 1996."

With TLS from Cardenas to Tony Lyons about the purchase of the book and how happy he is that Tony and Nick Lyons have it.
