A River Runs Through It and Other Stories - Norman Maclean

1976 - University of Chicago Press, Chicago - First Edition
‘In our family, there was no clear line between religion and fly fishing’

A freshly landed first edition of Maclean’s beautiful first book and the first work of fiction to be published by the University of Chicago Press, where he had been a professor for many years. Maclean had told versions of these stories, over the years, to a number of people who encouraged him, finally, to write them down at the age of eighty.

We lived at the junction of great trout rivers in western Montana, and our father was a Presbyterian minister and a fly fisherman who tied his own flies and taught others. He told us about Christ's disciples being fishermen, and we were left to assume, as my brother and I did, that all first-class fishermen on the Sea of Galilee were fly fishermen.
