A River Runs Through It: And Other Stories by Norman MacLean

From its first magnificent sentence, In our family, there was no clear line between religion and fly fishing, to the last, I am haunted by waters, A River Runs Through It is an American classic. Based on Norman Macleans childhood experiences, A River Runs Through It has established itself as one of the most moving stories of our time; it captivates readers with vivid descriptions of life along Montanas Big Blackfoot River and its near magical blend of fly fishing with the troubling affections of the heart. This handsome edition is designed and illustrated by Barry Moser. There are thirteen two-color wood engravings. A masterpiece. . . . This is more than stunning fiction: It is a lyric record of a time and a life, shining with Macleans special gift for calling the readers attention to arts of all kinds--the arts that work in nature, in personality, in social intercourse, in fly-fishing.--Kenneth M. Pierce, Village Voice Wise, witty, wonderful, Maclean spins his tales, casts his flies, fishes the rivers and woods for what he remembers of his youth in the Rockies.--Barbara Bannon, Publishers Weekly Macleans book is surely destined to be one of those rare memoirs that can be called a masterpiece. . . . Earthy, whimsical, authoritative, wise; it touches the heart without blushing and traces lasting images for the eye. . . . This book is a gem.--Nick Lyons, Fly-Fisherman Norman Maclean (1902-90), woodsman, scholar, teacher, and storyteller, grew up in the Western Rocky Mountains of Montana and worked for many years in logging camps and for the United States Forestry Service before beginning his academic career. He retired from the University of Chicago in 1973.
