A River Runs Through It


A River Runs Through It

Barry Moser,
Norman Maclean

A River Runs Through It
A lyrical masterpiece
as beautiful as the great
trout rivers of western
Montana where it is set.

Rep/Illus Edition
Hardcover, 161 pages
Published by University
of Chicago Press (Trd)


Set in Montana in 1937, this classic story of family relationships, love, and flyfishing tells of Maclean's desire to be of support to his younger brother and who, in the end, he cannot really help.

For Norman Maclean, his brother Paul, and their Presbyterian minister father, Summer of 1937 revolves around family and flyfishing. Their summer together is about grace, artistry, help offered and help refused. A River Runs Through It tells a story of family love.

The Academy Award-Winning movie version of this book starring Brad Pitt and Tom Skerritt is credited (or discredited) with starting the current fly fishing boom.

A three-cassette audio tape version of the book is available. The reader is Ivan Doig, and the length is four hours long. I have the movie, have the book and also have the audio tape. They all are wonderful.
