Product Description

In A River Runs Through It, Norman Maclean claims that “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, bridging troubled relationships at the junction of great trout rivers in western Montana. In Maclean’s autobiographical novella, it is the river that makes them realize that life continues and all things are related.

Just as Norman Maclean writes at the end of A River Runs Through It that he is “haunted by waters,” so have readers been haunted by his novella. A retired English professor who began writing fiction at the age of 70, Maclean produced what is now recognized as one of the classic American stories of the twentieth century.

Here, with A River Runs Through It, are two Norman Maclean stories never before on audio:
  • Logging and Pimping and “Your Pal, Jim”
  • USFS 1919: The Ranger, the Cook, and a Hole in the Sky
  • Author Bio

    NORMAN MACLEAN grew up in and around Missoula, Montana, where he worked in logging camps and for the U.S. Forest Service. He attended Dartmouth College and taught English for 46 years at the University of Chicago. He began writing A River Runs Through It in his 70s, at the request of his children. His son John remembers him as "the greatest man in the world to go fishing with."
