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. Originally published in 1976, A River Runs through It and Other Stories now celebrates its twenty-fifth anniversary, marked by this new edition that includes a foreword by Annie Proulx. Maclean grew up in the western Rocky Mountains in the first decades of the twentieth century. As a young man he worked many summers in logging camps and for the United States Forest Service. The two novellas and short story in this collection are based on his own experiences--the experiences of a young man who found that life was only a step from art in its structures and beauty. The beauty he found was in reality, and so he leaves a careful record of what it was like to work in the woods when it was still a world of horse and hand and foot, without power saws, "cats," or four-wheel drives. Populated with drunks, loggers, card sharks, and whores, and set in the small towns and surrounding trout streams and mountains of western Montana, the stories concern themselves with the complexities of fly fishing, logging, fighting forest fires, playing cribbage, and being a husband, a son, and a father. By turns raunchy, poignant, caustic, and elegiac, these are superb tales which express, in Maclean's own words, "a little of the love I have for the earth as it goes by." A first offering from a 70-year-old writer, the basis of a top-grossing movie, and the first original fiction published by the University of Chicago Press, A River Runs through It and Other Stories has sold more than a million copies. As Proulx writes in her foreword to this new edition, "In 1990 Norman Maclean died in body, but for hundreds of thousands of readers he will live as long as fish swim and books are made."… (mer)

I probably won't read this, but I did watch the film version the other day, which makes me say this. Don't die suddenly if you can avoid it. Just don't.

I don't think I'm the target audience for this collection. I was pretty bored for most of it. Although, I do believe this is something my dad would enjoy.

Gave up half way through. I just don't get it at all. ( )

A River Runs Through It is Norman Maclean’s affectionate and lyrical account of the bond fly fishing forged between himself and his father and brother. Fly fishing is a metaphor for beauty and grace but ultimately the book is about loving those we do not understand.

Although I think I understand the role of fly fishing in the book, I am not a fisherman and eventually found the descriptions of the minutia of the art a little tiresome. That said, I love this book and have read it several times.

There are two other stories in the volume, Logging and Pimping and “Your Pal, Jim” and "USFS 1919: The Ranger, the Cook, and a Hole in the Sky". Both are good but neither rises to the level of River. ( )

Honestly? I just couldn't get into it. I hate fishing, except as a video game. this book is so dull that I would use it to start a fire if it was my own book. ( )
