Product Description

Maclean writes “in my family, there is no clear line between religion and fly-fishing.” Nor is there a clear line between family and fly-fishing. It is the one activity where brother can connect with brother and father with son. In Maclean's autobiographical novella, it is the river that makes them realize that life continues and all things are related.

Also included on this new release: On the big Blackfoot , the memoir that inspired A River Runs Through It, read by Maclean and his son John, backed by the sounds of the Big Blackfoot River.


“Exquisite . . . this recording joins the ranks of the few near-perfect matches of reader and author.”
      —The Philadelphia Inquirer
