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. <BR>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. <BR>This handsome edition is designed and illustrated by Barry Moser. There are thirteen two-color wood engravings. <BR>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 <BR>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 <BR>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 <BR>Norman Maclean (1902-90), woodsman, scholar, teache
